Re: How do I set a runtime variable in debian/rules

Yes, you can use 

    this_dir        = $(shell pwd)

Kudos to Manoj as I sneaked this out of one of his debian/rules files. I use
it for variables as

    debtmp          = $(this_dir)/debian/tmp
    debman          = $(debtmp)/usr/man
    debdoc          = $(debtmp)/usr/doc/$(package)
    deblib          = $(debtmp)/usr/lib
