dpkg-genbuilddeps - generate a list of packages used to build this package


dpkg-genbuilddeps [arg ...]


This program is a wrapper around dpkg-depcheck(1). It should be run from the top of a
Debian build tree. It calls dpkg-buildpackage with any arguments given on the command
line, and by tracing the execution of this, it determines which non-essential packages
were used during the package building. This can be useful in determining what the Build-
Depends control fields should contain. It does not determine which packages were used for
the arch independent parts of the build and which for the arch dependent parts, not does
it attempt to determine which versions of packages are required. It should be able to run
under fakeroot rather than being run as root, as fakeroot dpkg-genbuilddeps, or dpkg-
genbuilddeps -rfakeroot.

This program requires the build-essential package to be installed. If it is not, please
use dpkg-depcheck directly, with a command such as
dpkg-depcheck --all dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -b -rfakeroot ...
All this program itself does is essentially to run the command:
dpkg-depcheck -b dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -b -rfakeroot [arg ...]
