Thanks for the report. CMake build should detect SWIG >= 2.0 now.

As for the gtest/gmock configure (and CMake) test, the story goes like this:

Josh submitted patches for gtest and gmock that would have added a
pkg-config file and wrote the configure code in anticipation that
those patches would be accespted. They weren't:

In fact they seem to suggest that projects include gtest/gmock source
with their project and compile them using the same compiler flags used
to compile the project itself:

Personally, I find this somewhat ridiculous.

I'm not sure if Josh's patches are still online and whether they'd
still apply cleanly against newer versions of gtest/gmock, but here
would be the directions to follow:

But in general, I guess the tests are not that important to
non-developers to go that extra mile. Writing some of them helped
track down issues with the code, but there aren't very many to begin
with. In the current state they aren't very useful to find
regressions, as the area of code they cover is so small.
