I manage to run configure correctly by giving the needed paths

./configure LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/Cellar PYTHON_EXTRA_LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/Cellar/python/2.7.6/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Python --enable-cgal-valgrind CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include/sparsehash -I/usr/local/Cellar/py2cairo/1.10.0/include/pycairo -I/usr/local/Cellar/cairo/1.12.16/include/cairo PYTHON_VERSION=2.7.6 CAIROMM_LIBS=-L/usr/local/Cellar/cairomm/1.10.0/lib -L/usr/local/Cellar/cairo/1.12.16/lib -L/usr/local/Cellar/cairo/1.12.16/include/cairo CAIROMM_CFLAGS=-O3 -lcairomm-1.0 -lcairo -lsigc-2.0

However I take now a fatal error when I run make

The problem is almost certainly that your are not passing the correct
non-default include paths you are using via the CPPFLAGS variable; you
just need to find the correct ones. Search in the config.log file for
errors such as "fatal error: 'cairo.h' file not found", and include the
directory where such include files are to be found.

Just be careful to set the include paths which are compatible with the
libraries that you are linking to.
