In my MPlayer-1.0pre7try2/README file, there is the following
NOTE: If you run Debian you can configure, compile and build a proper Debian
.deb package with only one command:
fakeroot debian/rules binary
If you want to pass custom options to configure, you can set up the
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS environment variable. For instance, if you want GUI
and OSD menu support you would use:
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="--enable-gui --enable-menu" fakeroot debian/rules binary
You can also pass some variables to the Makefile. For example, if you want
to compile with gcc 3.4 even if it's not the default compiler:
CC=gcc-3.4 DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="--enable-gui" fakeroot debian/rules binary
To clean up the source tree run the following command:
fakeroot debian/rules clean

Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is
particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself,
to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade.
But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands
shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit
me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail.
