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
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 "BUILDSYSTEMOPTIONS" 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
Pass params to the program that is run. These can be used to supplement
or override the any standard parameters that dh_auto_install passes.
