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.

       DPKG_COLORS
              Sets the color mode (since dpkg 1.18.5).  The currently
              accepted values are: auto (default), always and never.

       DPKG_NLS
              If set, it will be used to decide whether to activate
              Native Language Support, also known as
              internationalization (or i18n) support (since dpkg
              1.19.0).  The accepted values are: 0 and 1 (default).
