       dh_auto_install - automatically runs make install or similar


       dh_auto_install [debhelper options] [-- params]


       dh_auto_install is a debhelper program that tries to automatically
       install built files. If there’s a Makefile and it contains a "install"
       target, then this is done by running make (or MAKE, if the environment
       variable is set). If there is a or Build.PL, it is used.

       The files are installed into debian/<package>/ if there is only one
       binary package. In the multiple binary package case, the files are
       instead installed into debian/tmp/, and should be moved from there to
       the appropriate package build directory using dh_install(1) or

       DESTDIR is used to tell make where to install the files.  If the
       Makefile was generated by MakeMaker from a Makefile.PL, it will
       automatically set PREFIX=/usr too, since such Makefiles need that.

       This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn’t work,
       or tries to use the wrong install target, you’re encouraged to skip
       using dh_auto_install at all, and just run make install manually.


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



       This program is a part of debhelper.
