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.
