NAME

       dpkg-checkbuilddeps - check build dependencies and conflicts

SYNOPSIS

       dpkg-checkbuilddeps [option...]  [control-file]

DESCRIPTION

       This  program  checks  the installed packages in the system against the build dependencies
       and build conflicts listed in the control file. If any are not met, it displays  them  and
       exits with a nonzero return code.

       By  default, debian/control is read, but an alternate control filename may be specified on
       the command line.

OPTIONS

       --admindir=dir
              Change the location of the dpkg database. The default location is /var/lib/dpkg.

       -A     Ignore Build-Depends-Arch and Build-Conflicts-Arch lines. Use when only  arch-indep
              packages  will  be  built,  or  combine with -B when only a source package is to be
              built.

       -B     Ignore Build-Depends-Indep and Build-Conflicts-Indep lines. Use when only  arch-dep
              packages  will  be  built,  or  combine with -A when only a source package is to be
              built.

       -d build-depends-string

       -c build-conflicts-string
              Use the given build  dependencies/conflicts  instead  of  those  contained  in  the
              debian/control file.

       -a arch
              Check  build  dependencies/conflicts  assuming  that  the  package described in the
              control file is to be  built  for  the  given  host  architecture  instead  of  the
              architecture of the current system.

       -P profile[,...]
              Check  build  dependencies/conflicts  assuming  that  the  package described in the
              control file is to be built for the given  build  profile(s).  The  argument  is  a
              comma-separated list of profile names, without the "profile." namespace prefix.

       -?, --help
              Show the usage message and exit.

       --version
              Show the version and exit.

ENVIRONMENT

       DEB_BUILD_PROFILES
              If set, it will be used as the active build profile(s) for the package being built.
              It is a space separated list of profile names,  without  the  "profile."  namespace
              prefix. Overridden by the -P option.
