dh_autoreconf - Call autoreconf -f -i and keep track of the changed files.


dh_autoreconf [debhelper options] [-Xitem] [--mode=mode] [program -- params]


dh_autoreconf is responsible for calling autoreconf and creating the files debian/autoreconf.before and debian/autoreconf.after which contain checksums of all files before/after the build. It is complemented by dh_autoreconf_clean which creates a list of all changed and added files and removes them.


-Xitem --exclude=item
Exclude files that contain ``item'' anywhere in their filename from being checked for changes. This means that those files won't be deleted by "dh_autoreconf_clean" even if there are changes. You may use this option multiple times to build up a list of things to exclude.
Change the way in which modifications to files are detected. The default mode is md5 for using MD5 checksums, but there is also timesize for using the time of the last modification and the file size.
program -- params
Run the program given by program with the arguments given by params instead of autoreconf. If you need to run multiple commands, put them in a script and pass the script instead (or add a target to debian/rules).


For each tool executed by autoreconf(1), one can export a variable with the uppercase name of the tool to the specific program which shall be run, including true to prevent the tool in question from being run. The following example shows the beginning of a debian/rules for a package where automake 1.10 shall be run instead of the default automake version and libtoolize shall not be run:
     #!/usr/bin/make -f
     export AUTOMAKE = automake1.10
     export LIBTOOLIZE = true
