dh_auto_build - automatically builds a package
dh_auto_build [debhelper options] [-- params]
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.
Pass "params" to the program that is run. These can be used to
supplement or override any standard parameters that dh_auto_build
This program is a part of debhelper.
