Ah. Reading back this particular bit, it seems I misunderstood at least
this part. It doesn't matter what it was that broke the build (gcov related
or not), because build breakage is not what you are looking for: what you
are looking for is the last build that succeeded when building with gcov.
Still, I guess it would speed up the process if you could make a subtarget
from an otherwise clean build. Sorry for this part.
