Mmm. Yes. I see the issue. Our configure script essentially does a "uniq" on compiler flags; assuming that any flag seen twice is redundant, and removes it.
This functionality has been in Open MPI for a long, long time. Perhaps even back to 1.0 days. I'm surprised that this issue is only surfacing now. Did homebrew only recently start using a pair of -Xclang flags? Or did you have some other workaround?
Regardless, can you try this patch and see if it solves the issue for you? You'll need to re-run autogen.pl.
