DH_AUTO_CONFIGURE(1)               Debhelper              DH_AUTO_CONFIGURE(1)



NAME
       dh_auto_configure - automatically configure a package prior to building

SYNOPSIS
       dh_auto_configure [debhelper options] [-- params]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_auto_configure is a debhelper program that tries to automatically
       configure a package prior to building. It looks for and runs a
       ./configure script, Makefile.PL, or Build.PL. A standard set of
       parameters is determined and passed to the program that is run. If no
       program to run is found, 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 equivilant manually.

OPTIONS
       -- params
           Pass "params" to the program that is run. These can be used to
           suppliment or override the standard parameters that
           dh_auto_configure passes.

SEE ALSO
       debhelper(7)

       This program is a part of debhelper.
