dh_autoreconf - Call autoreconf -f -i and keep track of the changed files. SYNOPSIS
dh_autoreconf [debhelper options] [-Xitem] [--mode=mode] [program -- params] DESCRIPTION
dh_autoreconf is responsible for calling autoreconf and creating the files debian/autoreconf.before and debian/autoreconf.after which contain checksums of all files before/after the build. It is complemented by dh_autoreconf_clean which creates a list of all changed and added files and removes them. Please note that dh_autoreconf can only be run once. Thus, if you need to run multiple commands, use a script or similar. An example is given in dh-autoreconf(7). FILES
debian/autoreconf This file can contain a list of directories. If present, dh_autoreconf will only scan the given directories for changes. If no special command is given to dh_autoreconf, it will also forward the directory list to autoreconf which causes it to be run only on those sub directories. OPTIONS
-Xitem --exclude=item Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from being checked for changes. This means that those files won't be deleted by "dh_autoreconf_clean" even if there are changes. You may use this option multiple times to build up a list of things to exclude. Starting with version 3, the directories of common version control systems such as cvs, git, hg, svn, and bzr are excluded automatically. --mode=mode Change the way in which modifications to files are detected. The default mode is md5 for using MD5 checksums, but there is also timesize for using the time of the last modification and the file size. --as-needed Enable support for -Wl,--as-needed in all files identical to the one of the libtool package. This only works in the MD5 mode (the default one). The changes are reverted in dh_autoreconf_clean. You should not prevent LIBTOOLIZE from running with this, as it only works correctly with libtoolize running. program -- params Run the program given by program with the arguments given by params instead of autoreconf -f -i. If you need to run multiple commands, put them in a script and pass the script instead (or add a target to debian/rules). ENVIRONMENT
For each tool executed by autoreconf(1), one can export a variable with the uppercase name of the tool to the specific program which shall be run, including true to prevent the tool in question from being run. The following example shows the beginning of a debian/rules for a package where automake 1.10 shall be run instead of the default automake version and libtoolize shall not be run: #!/usr/bin/make -f export AUTOMAKE = automake1.10 export LIBTOOLIZE = true SEE ALSO

autoreconf - Update generated configuration files SYNOPSIS
Run `autoconf' (and `autoheader', `aclocal' and `automake', where appropriate) repeatedly to remake the Autoconf `configure' scripts and configuration header templates in the directory tree rooted at the current directory. By default, it only remakes those files that are older than their predecessors. If you install a new version of Autoconf, running `autoreconf' remakes all of the files by giving it the `--force' option. Operation modes: -h, --help print this help, then exit -V, --version print version number, then exit -v, --verbose verbosely report processing -d, --debug don't remove temporary files -f, --force consider every files are obsolete -i, --install copy missing auxiliary files -s, --symlink instead of copying, install symbolic links The option `--install' is similar to the option `--add-missing' in other tools. Library directories: -A, --autoconf-dir=ACDIR Autoconf's macro files location (rarely needed) -l, --localdir=DIR location of `aclocal.m4' and `acconfig.h' -M, --m4dir=M4DIR this package's Autoconf extensions Unless specified, heuristics try to compute `M4DIR' from the `', or defaults to `m4' if it exists. The following options are passed to `automake': --cygnus assume program is part of Cygnus-style tree --foreign set strictness to foreign --gnits set strictness to gnits --gnu set strictness to gnu --include-deps include generated dependencies in The environment variables AUTOCONF, AUTOHEADER, AUTOMAKE, and ACLOCAL are honored.
