       dh_auto_configure - automatically configure a package prior to building

       dh_auto_configure [buildsystemoptions] [debhelperoptions] [--params]

       dh_auto_configure 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 script,
       Makefile.PL, Build.PL, 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 will exit 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 ./configure or its equivalent

       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 standard parameters that
	   dh_auto_configure passes. This can be used to supplement or override those parameters.
	   For example:

	     dh_auto_configure -- --with-foo --enable-bar


       This program is a part of debhelper.
