NAME

       dh_auto_build - automatically builds a package

SYNOPSIS

       dh_auto_build [buildsystemoptions] [debhelperoptions] [--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.
