Configuring Source Packages....


How does one go about configuring a Debian Source Package before building it?

i.e.

What is the debian equivalent of

./configure --with-whatever-options-you-want
make dep
make
make install
make clean

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..

regards

I think the proper way to do it is to use apt-src.

I have not tried it myself, so once you install apt-src all I can suggest is #man apt-src
