          gcc-3.0 -fprofile-arcs -ftest-coverage SomeDir/somefile.c

        gcc puts somefile's .bb, .bbg, and .da files in the gcc's current
        working directory, not in SomeDir. This contradicts the
        gcc-3.0 docs:

          "These additional files are placed in the directory
           where the source code is located."

          [from http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-3.0/gcc_8.html]
        gcc-3.0 -fprofile-arcs -ftest-coverage SomeDir/somefile.c
        (no fix provided)
