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

DH_AUTO_INSTALL(1)			    Debhelper			       DH_AUTO_INSTALL(1)

NAME
       dh_auto_install - automatically runs make install or similar

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

DESCRIPTION
       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.

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

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

       -- 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.

SEE ALSO
