dh_builddeb(1) [xfree86 man page]

DH_BUILDDEB(1)							     Debhelper							    DH_BUILDDEB(1)

NAME
       dh_builddeb - build Debian binary packages

SYNOPSIS
       dh_builddeb [debhelperoptions] [--destdir=directory] [--filename=name] [--params]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_builddeb simply calls dpkg-deb(1) to build a Debian package or packages.  It will also build dbgsym packages when dh_strip(1) and
       dh_gencontrol(1) have prepared them.

       It supports building multiple binary packages in parallel, when enabled by DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS.

       When the Rules-Requires-Root field is not (effectively) binary-targets, dh_builddeb will pass --root-owner-group to dpkg-deb(1).

OPTIONS
       --destdir=directory
	   Use this if you want the generated .deb files to be put in a directory other than the default of "..".

       --filename=name
	   Use this if you want to force the generated .deb file to have a particular file name. Does not work well if more than one .deb is
	   generated!

       -- params
	   Pass params to dpkg-deb(1) when it is used to build the package.

       -uparams
	   This is another way to pass params to dpkg-deb(1).  It is deprecated; use -- instead.

SEE ALSO
       debhelper(7)

       This program is a part of debhelper.
