B<dh_icons> is a debhelper program that updates Freedesktop icon caches
when needed, using the B<update-icon-caches> program provided by GTK+2.12.
Currently this program does not handle installation of the files, though it

+It takes care of adding maintainer script fragments to call
+B<update-icon-caches> for icon directories. (This is not done for gnome and
+hicolor icons, as those are handled by triggers.)
+These commands are inserted into the maintainer scripts by L<dh_installdeb(1)>.
