-dh_installdebconf is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing
-files used by the debconf package into package build directories.
-It also automatically generates the postrm commands needed to
-interface with debconf. See
-.BR dh_installdeb (1)
-for an explanation of how this works.
-Files named debian/package.config and debian/package.templates are installed
-into the DEBIAN directory in the package build directory.
-Note that if you use debconf, your package probably needs to depend on it.
-Debconf also supports localized template files, and this program has some
-support to aid working with them. You may find it easiest to keep the
-translations in separate files, and merge them only at build time. See
-.BR debconf-mergetemplate (1)
-for details.
-This program will automatically call
-.BR debconf-mergetemplate (1)
-and merge templates on the fly if it finds your template files are accompnied
-by translated files that have the same name as the template file, with a
-dot and two letters prepended.
-For example, if you have a German translation,
-debian/ is merged with debian/package.templates.
-If you use this feature, your package should build-depend on debconf-utils.

-.B \-n, \--noscripts
-Do not modify postrm script.
-.BR debhelper (1)
-for a list of environment variables that affect all debhelper commands.
-Note that this command is not idempotent. "dh_clean -k" should be called
-between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple
-instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.
