PROGRAM:

NAME


build-rdeps - find packages that depend on a specific package to build (reverse build
depends)

SYNOPSIS


build-rdeps package

DESCRIPTION


build-rdeps searches for all packages that build-depend on the specified package.

The default behaviour is to just `grep` for the given dependency in the Build-Depends
field of apt's Sources files.

If the package dose-extra >= 4.0 is installed, then a more complete reverse build
dependency computation is carried out. In particular, with that package installed, build-
rdeps will find transitive reverse dependencies, respect architecture and build profile
restrictions, take Provides relationships, Conflicts, Pre-Depends, Build-Depends-Arch and
versioned dependencies into account and correctly resolve multiarch relationships for
crossbuild reverse dependency resolution. (This tends to be a slow process due to the
complexity of the package interdependencies.)

OPTIONS


-u, --update
Run apt-get update before searching for build-depends.

-s, --sudo
Use sudo when running apt-get update. Has no effect if -u is omitted.

--distribution
Select another distribution, which is searched for build-depends.

--only-main
Ignore contrib and non-free

--exclude-component
Ignore the given component (e.g. main, contrib, non-free).

--origin
Restrict the search to only the specified origin (such as "Debian").

-m, --print-maintainer
Print the value of the maintainer field for each package.

--host-arch
Explicitly set the host architecture. The default is the value of `dpkg-architecture
-qDEB_HOST_ARCH`. This option only works if dose-extra >= 4.0 is installed.

--old
Force the old simple behaviour without dose-ceve support even if dose-extra >= 4.0 is
installed. (This tends to be faster.)

Notice, that the old behaviour only finds direct dependencies, ignores virtual
dependencies, does not find transitive dependencies and does not take version
relationships, architecture restrictions, build profiles or multiarch relationships
into account.

--build-arch
Explicitly set the build architecture. The default is the value of `dpkg-architecture
-qDEB_BUILD_ARCH`. This option only works if dose-extra >= 4.0 is installed.

-d, --debug
Run the debug mode

--help
Show the usage information.

--version
Show the version information.

REQUIREMENTS


The tool requires apt Sources files to be around for the checked components. In the
default case this means that in /var/lib/apt/lists files need to be around for main,
contrib and non-free.

In practice this means one needs to add one deb-src line for each component, e.g.

deb-src http://<mirror>/debian <dist> main contrib non-free

and run apt-get update afterwards or use the update option of this tool.
