=head1 DESCRIPTION
-dh runs a sequence of debhelper commands. The supported sequences
-correspond to the targets of a debian/rules file: "build", "clean",
-"install", "binary-arch", "binary-indep", and "binary".
+B<dh> runs a sequence of debhelper commands. The supported I<sequence>s

+B<build-indep>, B<build>, B<clean>, B<install-indep>, B<install-arch>,
+B<install>, B<binary-arch>, B<binary-indep>, and B<binary>.
-Commands in the binary-indep sequence are passed the "-i" option to ensure
-they only work on binary independent packages, and commands in the
-binary-arch sequences are passed the "-a" option to ensure they only work
-on architecture dependent packages.
