Configuring Source Packages....
How does one go about configuring a Debian Source Package before building it?
What is the debian equivalent of
This is what the extent of my knowledge:
apt-get source <package-name>
apt-get build-dep <package-name>
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b
But this misses out the stage where I can specify extra compile time options...
basically, how can i ./configure --with-my-options ?
I know I could just download the generic source and do it the normal way, but then apt/dpkg would be in a mess, I suppose I could just uninstall the package, and then hold it.... but Im sure that's not the proper way to do it...
cheers in advance for any help..
