The previous gcov behavior was to always output errors on the stderr channel.
This is fine for most uses, but some programs will require stderr to be
untouched by libgcov for certain tests. This change allows configuring
the gcov output via an environment variable which will be used to open
the appropriate file.

this is ok, thanks.

1) Do you know how to write and format a ChangeLog entry?
2) Are you able to commit the patch yourself (or have someone at RH walk you 
through the process)

I can copy the style used, I hope.

I don't know how to do this for gcc, but I will ask.

Thanks for your all your time!
