NAME

dh_auto_build - automatically builds a package  

SYNOPSIS

dh_auto_build [build system options] [debhelper options] [-- 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. These can be used to supplement or override any standard parameters that dh_auto_build passes.
