dh_auto_configure - automatically configure a package prior to building
[build system options
] [ -- params
is a debhelper program that tries to automatically
configure a package prior to building. It does so by running the appropriate
command for the build system it detects the package uses. For example, it
looks for and runs a ./configure
, or cmake
. A standard set of parameters is determined
and passed to the program that is run. Some build systems, such as make, do
not need a configure step; for these dh_auto_configure
without doing anything.
This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn't work, you're
encouraged to skip using dh_auto_configure
at all, and just run
or its equivalent 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_configure usually passes. For example:
dh_auto_configure -- --with-foo --enable-bar
This program is a part of debhelper.
