dh_auto_install - automatically runs make install or similar


dh_auto_install [build system options] [debhelper options] [-- params]


dh_auto_install is a debhelper program that tries to automatically install built files. It
does so by running the appropriate command for the build system it detects the package
uses. For example, 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. Note that the Ant build system does not support installation, so
dh_auto_install will not install files built using Ant.

Unless --destdir option is specified, 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).

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 install target, you're encouraged to skip using dh_auto_install at all, and just
run make install manually.


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

Install files into the specified directory. If this option is not specified,
destination directory is determined automatically as described in the "DESCRIPTION"

-- params
Pass params to the program that is run, after the parameters that dh_auto_install
usually passes.
