DH_AUTO_BUILD(1)                  Debhelper                 DH_AUTO_BUILD(1)

NAME         top

       dh_auto_build - automatically builds a package

SYNOPSIS         top

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

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

       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.
