dh_shlibdeps - calculate shared library dependancies
dh_shlibdeps [debhelper options] [-ldirectory] [-Xitem] [-- params]
dh_shlibdeps is a debhelper program that is responsible for calculating
shared library dependancies for packages.
This program is merely a wrapper around dpkg-shlibdeps(1) that calls it
once for each package listed in the control file, passing it a list of
ELF executables and shared libraries it has found.
Pass "params" to dpkg-shlibdeps(1).
Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from
being passed to dpkg-shlibdeps. This will make their dependancies
be ignored. This may be useful in some situations, but use it with
caution. This option may be used more than once to exclude more
than one thing.
Before dpkg-shlibdeps is run, LD_LIBRARY_PATH will have added to it
the specified directory (or directories -- separate with colons).
This is useful for multi-binary packages where a library is built
in one package and another package contains binaries linked against
said library. Relative paths will be made absolute for the benefit
This program is a part of debhelper.
