=head1 DESCRIPTION
-dh_auto_clean is a debhelper program that tries to automatically clean up
+B<dh_auto_clean> is a debhelper program that tries to automatically clean up
after a package build. It does so by running the appropriate command for
the build system it detects the package uses. For example, if there's a
-Makefile and it contains a "distclean", "realclean", or "clean" target,
-then this is done by running make (or MAKE, if the environment variable is
-set). If there is a setup.py or Build.PL, it is run to clean the package.
+F<Makefile> and it contains a B<distclean>, B<realclean>, or B<clean> target,
+then this is done by running B<make> (or B<MAKE>, if the environment variable is
+set). If there is a F<setup.py> or F<Build.PL>, it is run to clean the package.
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 encouraged to skip using
-dh_auto_clean at all, and just run make clean manually.
