NAME         top

       dpkg-checkbuilddeps - check build dependencies and conflicts

SYNOPSIS         top

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

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

       --admindir=dir
              Change the location of the dpkg database (since dpkg 1.14.0).
              The default location is /usr/local/var/lib/dpkg.

       -A     Ignore Build-Depends-Arch and Build-Conflicts-Arch lines
              (since dpkg 1.16.4).  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.

       -I     Ignore built-in build depends and conflicts (since dpkg
              1.18.2).  These are implicit dependencies that are usually
              required on a specific distribution, the so called Build-
              Essential package set.

       -d build-depends-string

       -c build-conflicts-string
              Use the given build dependencies/conflicts instead of those
              contained in the debian/control file (since dpkg 1.14.17).

       -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 (since dpkg 1.16.2).

       -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) (since dpkg 1.17.2).  The argument is a
              comma-separated list of profile names.

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

       --version
              Show the version and exit.

ENVIRONMENT         top

       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. Overridden by the -P option.
