Linux 2.6 - man page for dh_auto_install (linux section 1)

DH_AUTO_INSTALL(1)			    Debhelper			       DH_AUTO_INSTALL(1)

       dh_auto_install - automatically runs make install or similar

       dh_auto_install [buildsystemoptions] [debhelperoptions] [--params]

       dh_auto_install is a debhelper program that tries to automatically install built files. It
       does so by running the appropriate command for the build system it detects the package
       uses. For example, if there's a Makefile and it contains a install target, then this is
       done by running make (or MAKE, if the environment variable is set). If there is a setup.py
       or Build.PL, it is used. Note that the Ant build system does not support installation, so
       dh_auto_install will not install files built using Ant.

       Unless --destdir option is specified, the files are installed into debian/package/ if
       there is only one binary package. In the multiple binary package case, the files are
       instead installed into debian/tmp/, and should be moved from there to the appropriate
       package build directory using dh_install(1).

       DESTDIR is used to tell make where to install the files.  If the Makefile was generated by
       MakeMaker from a Makefile.PL, it will automatically set PREFIX=/usr too, since such
       Makefiles need that.

       This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn't work, or tries to use
       the wrong install target, you're encouraged to skip using dh_auto_install at all, and just
       run make install manually.

       See "BUILD SYSTEM OPTIONS" in debhelper(7) for a list of common build system selection and
       control options.

	   Install files into the specified directory. If this option is not specified,
	   destination directory is determined automatically as described in the "DESCRIPTION"

       -- params
	   Pass params to the program that is run. These can be used to supplement or override
	   the any standard parameters that dh_auto_install passes.


       This program is a part of debhelper.
