dh-make-perl does everything for you, all in one swoop. It offers no
--debug flag, or a --just_build-halfway flag. So how do you flag
DH_VERBOSE to 1? By the time you have a Makefile, the .deb has already
What would be really great is a --just-build-halfway flag or something,
that does everything EXCEPT try to make and build the project.
Does that make any sense? Or am I looking at my problem in the wrong way?
