Re: build-indep and buildd

* Roger Leigh <rleigh@codelibre.net>, 2012-02-01, 12:52:
Could someone please gives an update on the status of build-indep target and buildd machine ? I am using the following pattern (as per dh documentation):

              #!/usr/bin/make -f
                      dh $@

                      $(MAKE) -C docs

              # No tests needed for docs

However buildd machine are still running -indep target. I'd like to test my package first on my local machine to mimic what would a buildd machine do (I cant find the dpkg-buildpackage command line option used for buildd)

I would make sure you are Build-Depending upon a new enough debhelper; some versions were buggy until recently. The earliest non-broken version is 8.9.10, though at this point >= 9 is probably best.

But that of course won't help, as dpkg-buildpackage doesn't use build-indep.
