Is there a way for gcov to provide coverage analysis of a shared
library without building the main() program that uses the shared

I have external users of the library that have their own executable
programs that use the library and I need to test code coverage with
those programs but I do not have access to their source code.

Surely somebody else has encountered this problem with gcov.
