I went ahead and evaluated some of the major contenders for C++: CppUnit,
Boost.Test, CppUnitLite, NanoCppUnit, Unit++, and CxxUnit.
frameworks and my conclusions here:

Games from Within
"After looking into a framework that tried to be different from XUnit (Unit++), I wasn't particularly looking forward to evaluating possibly the most wacky one of them all, CxxTest. I had never heard of it until a few days ago, but I knew that it required using Perl along the way to generate some C++ code. My spider senses were tingling.
Boy was I wrong!! Within minutes of using CxxTest and reading through its great documentation (the best by far), I was completely convinced this was the way to go. This came as a complete surprise to me since I was ready to leave somewhat dissatisfied and pronounce a victor between CppUnit and CppUnitLite."
