build-rdeps - find packages that depend on a specific package to build (reverse build depends)
build-rdeps searches for all packages that build-depend on the specified package.
-u, --update Run apt-get update before searching for build-depends. -s, --sudo Use sudo when running apt-get update. Has no effect if -u is omitted. --distribution Select another distribution, which is searched for build-depends. --only-main Ignore contrib and non-free --exclude-component Ignore the given component (e.g. main, contrib, non-free). --origin Restrict the search to only the specified origin (such as "Debian"). -m, --print-maintainer Print the value of the maintainer field for each package. -d, --debug Run the debug mode --help Show the usage information. --version Show the version information.
The tool requires apt Sources files to be around for the checked components. In the default case this means that in /var/lib/apt/lists files need to be around for main, contrib and non-free. In practice this means one needs to add one deb-src line for each component, e.g. deb-src http://<mirror>/debian <dist> main contrib non-free and run apt-get update afterwards or use the update option of this tool.
