There are many that are simpler. One is even inside boost itself:
<boost/detail/lightweight_test.hpp> is one that several library owners
have told me that they use instead of Boost.Test because B.T. kept
breaking their builds and the documentation was not usable.

>* No one ever expressed a problem with Boost.Test being slow

Quite a bunch of people expressed frustration with the compile time at
the C++ Now! 2014 workshop.

>* Boost.Test is header only (has an ability)

This one is particularly hard on the compile times.
