googletest version is not detected properly.
When doing this on Mac OS 10.12.6:
autoreconf -i && ./configure --with-gtest-source=/Users/thomson/devel/gtest-1.8.0
I get the following (note the version is not detected as 1.8.0, but rather as "googletest")
Google Test: GTEST_VERSION: googletest GTEST_INCLUDES: -I/Users/thomson/devel/gtest-1.8.0/googletest -I/Users/thomson/devel/gtest-1.8.0/googletest/include GTEST_LDFLAGS: GTEST_LDADD: $(top_builddir)/ext/gtest/libgtest.a GTEST_SOURCE: /Users/thomson/devel/gtest-1.8.0/googletest
