gcc does not create '.bb' files, only '.bbg' files.

Hi.  When I use gcc with the -fprofile-arcs -ftest-coverage options, it 
creates .bbg files but not .bb files.  gcov still works, but another tool I 
would like to use (lcov: 
http://ltp.sourceforge.net/coverage/lcov.readme.php) requires .bb files.  I 
know this used to work, do I need an older version of gcc?  Relevant 
information included below.  TIA
