NAME

       dh_auto_build - automatically builds a package

SYNOPSIS

       dh_auto_build [debhelper options] [-- params]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_auto_build is a debhelper program that tries to automatically build
       a package. If a Makefile is found, this is done by running make (or
       MAKE, if the environment variable is set).  If there’s a setup.py, or
       Build.PL, it is run to build the package.

       This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn’t work,
       you’re encouraged to skip using dh_auto_build at all, and just run the
       build process manually.

OPTIONS

       -- params
           Pass "params" to the program that is run. These can be used to
           suppliment or override any standard parameters that dh_auto_build
           passes.
