dh_auto_build - automatically builds a package
dh_auto_build [buildÂ systemÂ options] [debhelperÂ options] [--Â params]
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.
See "BUILD SYSTEM OPTIONS" in debhelper(7) for a list of common build
system selection and control options.
Pass params to the program that is run, after the parameters that
dh_auto_build usually passes.
This program is a part of debhelper.
