dh_installdirs is a debhelper program that is responsible for creating
subdirectories in package build directories.
+A file named debian/package.dirs can list directories to be created.
+Separate the directory names with whitespace.
+
Any directory names specified as parameters will be created in the package
build directory of the first package dh_installdirs is told to act on. By
default, this is the first binary package in debian/control, but if you use
-p, -i, or -a flags, it will be the first package specified by those flags.
-A file named debian/package.dirs can list other directories to be created.
-Separate the directory names with whitespace.
-
Be sure to only use directory names relative to the package build
directory. Ie, "/usr/bin" should not be used, use "usr/bin" instead.
