NAME         top

       dh_builddeb - build Debian binary packages

SYNOPSIS         top

       dh_builddeb [debhelper options] [--destdir=directory]
       [--filename=name] [-- params]

DESCRIPTION         top

       dh_builddeb simply calls dpkg-deb(1) to build a Debian package or
       packages.  It will also build dbgsym packages when dh_strip(1)
       and dh_gencontrol(1) have prepared them.

       It supports building multiple binary packages in parallel, when
       enabled by DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS.

       When the Rules-Requires-Root field is not (effectively) binary-
       targets, dh_builddeb will pass --root-owner-group to dpkg-deb(1).
