With this patch (using unmodified pod2man from Perl 5.6.0), I get a
reasonable manpage from gcov.texi.  When I try to extend the manpage to
cover the whole of gcov.texi, I notice:

* It doesn't remove @node lines.

* The line

=head2 Brief description of C<gcov> data files

comes out oddly in the nroff output.  This would seem to be a pod2man
problem: at the end of the C<...>, the standard font rather than the font
used in the header gets restored.
