Define a 'quickcover' make target

Our Google Code-In students have had several tasks to improve the coverage of our source code by our tests. However, it has become apparent to them and to me that our current make cover target takes too long to run and has a scope to broad to be useful in improving the coverage of .c and .pmc files.
So I propose a quickcover target which will implement a subset of cover. quickcover, to put it approximately, will jettison the runs of the alternate runcores as well as the tests of the Perl 5 components.
I hope to get this working tonight. Comments?
