=head1 NAME

dh_auto_configure - automatically configure a package prior to building

=cut

use strict;
use Debian::Debhelper::Dh_Lib;

=head1 SYNOPSIS

B<dh_auto_configure> [S<I<debhelper options>>] [S<B<--> I<params>>]

=head1 DESCRIPTION

dh_auto_configure is a debhelper program that tries to automatically
configure a package prior to building. It looks for and runs
a ./configure script, or Makefile.PL. A standard set of parameters is
determined and passed to the program that is run. If no program to run
is found, dh_auto_configure will exit without doing anything.

This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn't work,
you're encoruaged to skip using dh_auto_configure at all, and just run
./configure or its equivilant manually.

=head1 OPTIONS

=over 4

=item B<--> I<params>

Pass "params" to the program that is run. These can be used to suppliment
or override the standard parameters that dh_auto_configure passes.
