NAME

       dh_auto_configure - automatically configure a package prior to building

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       dh_auto_configure is a debhelper program that tries to automatically configure a package
       prior to building. It does so by running the appropriate command for the build system it
       detects the package uses.  For example, it looks for and runs a ./configure script,
       Makefile.PL, Build.PL, or cmake. A standard set of parameters is determined and passed to
       the program that is run. Some build systems, such as make, do not need a configure step;
       for these dh_auto_configure will exit without doing anything.

       This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn't work, you're encouraged
       to skip using dh_auto_configure at all, and just run ./configure or its equivalent
       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_configure
           usually passes. For example:

             dh_auto_configure -- --with-foo --enable-bar
