However I had a deeper look into the GnuCash CMake files regarding integration of GoogleTest into the GnuCash build system and it looked a little bit strange to me. From my CMake experience I would choose a different way. And I would say, that not only this bug should be fixed, but the whole GoogleTest integration should be updated.
