No, there is no issue with the patches. Let my oversimplify things: homebrew
dislike gui stuff in general and particularly if it requires patches which
are not accepted upstream. There has been several discussions, e.g. here:

In this case there would be just one octave that you start with or without
gui. By the way: of course you could also call the cli-version from the
App-bundle if you prefer. It's in there.
