google-test (gtest) is a C++ unit-test library. We use it for all C++ testing. It doesn't appear to be available in any OS package manager.
It's pretty small (468K tarball) and pretty quick to build (approx 20 seconds, including the initial download). Thus it could be kept in 3rdparty with little cost.
