dh_auto_configure - automatically configure a package prior to building
dh_auto_configure [debhelper options] [-- params]
dh_auto_configure is a debhelper program that tries to automatically configure a package prior to building. It looks for and runs a ./configure script, Makefile.PL, or Build.PL. A standard set of parameters is determined and passed to the program that is run. If no program to run is found, dh_auto_configure will exit without doing anything.
This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn't work, you're encouraged to skip using dh_auto_configure at all, and just run ./configure or its equivilant manually.
This program is a part of debhelper.
