dh_installdirs - create subdirectories in package build directories
dh_installdirs [debhelper options] [-A] [--sourcedir=dir] [--create-in-sourcedir] [dir ...]
dh_installdirs is a debhelper program that is responsible for creating subdirectories in package build directories. Many packages can get away with omitting the call to dh_installdirs completely. Notably, other dh_* commands are expected to create directories as needed.
debian/package.dirs Lists directories to be created in package. Generally, there is no need to list directories created by the upstream build system or directories needed by other debhelper commands.
-A, --all Create any directories specified by command line parameters in ALL packages acted on, not just the first. --create-in-sourcedir, --no-create-in-sourcedir Whether to create the specified directories in the source directory (usually debian/tmp) in addition to in the package build directory (usually debian/package). The default is --no-create-in-sourcedir. --sourcedir=dir Consider dir the source directory for the packages acted on instead of the default (which is usually debian/tmp). Please note that this option is dependent on the --create-in-sourcedir option (when --no-create-in-sourcedir is in effect, this option does nothing in dh_installdirs). dir ... Create these directories in the package build directory of the first package acted on. (Or in all packages if -A is specified.)
