[ILUG-BOM] Open source C++ programs

I am looking for some programs for performing empirical measurements of 
a new method of static analysis for resolving virtual function calls. My 
rough requirements are:

  * The programs should be publicly available (the credibility
    measurements on programs that they cannot see.
  * The programs should be real applications, preferably not very large
    (say upto 20KLoC).
  * They should have a liberal use of virtual functions.
  * They should be compilable by gcc/g++.
  * They should have dependencies on special libraries or other
    programs. The build progress should be simple. Ideally, the usual
    sequence of `./configure' followed by 'make' should do the trick.
  * They should be reasonably clean programs. Some C++ features are
    compiled in an obscure manner by gcc/g++ and we seem to be spending
    much more time in fighting the IRs produced by these obscure
    compilations than in the actual problems at hand. Spec benchmarks
    have troubled us a lot on this front.

We are looking at the programs on sourceforge and github but there are 
no easy ways of identifying such programs. Any suggestions would be 
highly appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
