NAME

       dh-autoreconf - debhelper add-on to run autoreconf during build

DESCRIPTION

       The dh-autoreconf package provides a sequence addon for debhelper 7 which can be used in
       the following way:

           #!/usr/bin/make -f
           %:
               dh $@ --with autoreconf

       This will call dh_autoreconf prior to dh_auto_configure and will call dh_autoreconf_clean
       before dh_clean.

       For more information on how to control the autoreconf process or how to other possible
       options, read the dh_autoreconf(1) and dh_autoreconf_clean(1) manual pages.

CDBS INTEGRATION

       This package also provides /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/autoreconf.mk for packages using CDBS.
       The variable "DEB_DH_AUTORECONF_ARGS" can be used to pass extra arguments to
       dh_autoreconf, and the variable "DEB_DH_AUTORECONF_CLEAN_ARGS" to pass arguments to
       dh_autoreconf_clean. See their manual pages for information on available arguments.

PATCHING LTMAIN.SH FOR AS-NEEDED LINKER FLAGS

       You can add support for -Wl,--as-needed to ltmain.sh (at least for those ltmain.sh scripts
       changed during autoreconf) by passing the argument --as-needed to dh_autoreconf, as
       demonstrated in the following example:

           #!/usr/bin/make -f
           %:
               dh $@ --with autoreconf
           override_dh_autoreconf:
               dh_autoreconf --as-needed

       and for CDBS, by adding it to the correct variable such as:

           DEB_DH_AUTORECONF_ARGS = --as-needed

       For more information about this feature, see dh_autoreconf(1)

CAVEATS

       dh_autoreconf is a superset of the autotools-dev debhelper addons, so you do not need
       --with=autotools_dev if you use --with=autoreconf. In fact, in most cases they should not
       be used together, as it may lead to unpredictable behaviour.

       From time to time, there might be a short breakage for those using automatic ltmain.sh
       patching, when the patch now longer applies to the ltmain.sh.
