dh_auto_install: New program, automates running make install, or using setup.py to install. Supports the PREFIX=/usr special case needed by MakeMaker Makefiles. (Support for cmake and other build systems planned but not yet implemented.)

+=head1 SYNOPSIS
+
+B<dh_auto_install> [S<I<debhelper options>>] [S<B<--> I<params>>]
+
+=head1 DESCRIPTION
+
+dh_auto_install is a debhelper program that tries to automatically install
+built files. 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, it is used.
+
+The files are installed into debian/<package>/ if there is only one binary
+package to act on. 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 L<dh_install(1)> or
+L<dh_movefiles(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 clean target, you're encoruaged to skip using
+dh_auto_install at all, and just run make install manually.
