[Snort-devel] Configure Snort with --enable-test-coverage

I already tried to find "*.gcov" files using "find / -name "*.gcov". It
seems that no such files are created even with the configuration from
above. Maybe an option must be set when launching Snort after this specific
installation but I can not find it.
