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