NAME
       dh_auto_build - automatically builds a package

SYNOPSIS
       dh_auto_build [buildsystemoptions] [debhelperoptions] [--params]

DESCRIPTION
       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
       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. These can be used to supplement or override
	   any standard parameters that dh_auto_build passes.

SEE ALSO
       debhelper(7)

       This program is a part of debhelper.
