Typo: advantageous.

Maybe the package directory should be named "googletest" and the option
BR2_PACKAGE_GOOGLETEST. But I'm not sure since the upstream tarball is
just "gtest".

Even though I understand that it is composed only of a static library,
I find this GTEST_INSTALL_TARGET = NO a bit strange. But well, ok.

Maybe some day we will want to have support in the package
infrastructure to extract .zip files (we already have 3-4 packages that
could benefit from this). But it can be done later.

There's no "make install" or something like that?

Thanks,
