I'd like to suggest the following minor change to the 'coverage' targets in 

With it, when improving coverage of the test suite, a developer can bootstrap 
the coverage build with 'make coverage', then add individual test, then run 
"make re-coverage" and just re-generate the reports, without the need to 
rebuild and re-check the entire project.

Comments welcomed,

An alternative is to move the 'lcov' command into the 'gen-coverage' target, 
but I wasn't sure if 'gen-coverage' is separate for some historical reason.
