DH_AUTO_INSTALL(1) Debhelper DH_AUTO_INSTALL(1)
dh_auto_install - automatically runs make install or similar
dh_auto_install [debhelper options] [-- params]
dh_auto_install is a debhelper program that tries to automatically
install built files. 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.
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) or
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 clean target, you're encouraged to skip using
dh_auto_install at all, and just run make install manually.
Pass "params" to the program that is run. These can be used to
suppliment or override the any standard parameters that
This program is a part of debhelper.
