I believe so, yes. Good catch.

Is -prune portable? I don't see it in the POSIX spec of find(1).

Is there a way to avoid find(1) altogether here? For example, by skipping this
block when gcov hasn't been run, or by hardcoding glob patterns to gcda/gcno
files, etc?

Would the following be correct? —
    if test -e gcov-report; then
        find . \( -name "*.gcda" -o -name "*.gcno" \) -exec rm -f -- {} \;
        rm -rf gcov-report

I deliberately did the «rm» after the «find» to make the target

Alternatively, you could sidestep the problem entirely by doing an out-of-tree
build and then just rm -rf the builddir. (I always do out-of-tree builds with
the build tree on a ramdisk; it's far faster this way. That used to be documented
on http://wiki.apache.org/subversion/BuildNotes, but I'm not sure if that link's
still valid — it just gives me a login prompt now ☹)
