dh_builddeb — build Debian binary packages

Synopsis

dh_builddeb [debhelper options] [--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.

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.
