NAME

       dh_auto_build - automatically builds a package

SYNOPSIS

       dh_auto_build [build system options] [debhelper options] [-- params]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_auto_build is a debhelper program that tries to automatically build a package. It does
       so by running the appropriate command for the build system it detects the package uses.
       For example, 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

       See "BUILD SYSTEM OPTIONS" in debhelper(7) for a list of common build system selection and
       control options.

       -- params
           Pass params to the program that is run, after the parameters that dh_auto_build
           usually passes.
