I should mention that we are *not* using gcc/g++ as our compiler, rather xlc/xlC (AIX) and whatever the standard VMS compiler is.  I prefer an open source tool, if it exists.  Any help would be appreciated, even if the coverage analysis tool only works with CppUnit/CppUnitLite, etc...

If you're referring to the IBM XL C/C++ compiler on AIX, then AFAIK,
boost::test should provide a fairly full-featured unit testing library
that works. IBM has an article on modifications needed to 1.32 to get
it working:
