[GNC-dev] Unable to run test on mac os.

For that solution it should have been CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR instead of CMAKE_BINARY_DIR, but I decided instead to add a generator statement so that it would put libgtest.a and libgmock.a where Xcode expects them. I also added CONFIGURATIONS statements to the add_test specs so that all of the tests get run. That's pushed.

The three tests that failed for you fail for me on Xcode too. The problem is that they're gncmodule-loading tests and they can't find the modules they're supposed to load. It's not a dependency problem, the modules are built. I haven't figured out what's wrong yet.
