NAME

       which-pkg-broke-build - find which package might have broken another package's build

SYNOPSIS

       which-pkg-broke-build [.]
       which-pkg-broke-build <source-directory>
       which-pkg-broke-build <source-package>

DESCRIPTION

       The  which-pkg-broke-build  program  will  retrieve  a  list  of  all  (recursive)  build-
       dependencies of the named package sorted by the time they were installed on the system (as
       determined from the mtime information of /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.list .

       This  tool  allows  a  package  developer  to  obtain  information  that  might  correlate
       installation of package build-dependencies with a package build breakage in order to  find
       which build-dependency update might be responsible for the breakage.

PARAMETERS

       If  there's a parameter and it's an existing directory, which-pkg-broke-build assumes that
       this is an unpacked Debian source package and looks for its build-dependencies.

       If there's a parameter and it's not an existing directory,  which-pkg-broke-build  assumes
       that it's a source package name and looks for that source package's build-dependencies.

       If there's no parameter, which-pkg-broke-build assumes that the current directory contains
       an unpacked Debian source package and looks for its build-dependencies.

BUGS

       which-pkg-broke-build is horribly slow and inefficient as it  calls  which-pkg-broke  once
       for  each  explicit  build-dependency (and once for the package build-essential). It hence
       checks packages which  are  dependencies  of  multiple  explicit  build-dependencies  also
       multiple times.
