dh_auto_build - automatically builds a package
dh_auto_build [build system options] [debhelper options] [-- params]
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.
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.
debhelper(7) This program is a part of debhelper.
