       cvs-debuild - build a Debian package using cvs-buildpackage and debuild

       cvs-debuild  [debuild  options]  [cvs-buildpackage options] [--lintian-
       opts lintian options]

       cvs-debuild is a wrapper around cvs-buildpackage to run it with debuild
       as  the  package-building program.  (This cannot simply be accomplished
       using the -C option of cvs-buildpackage, as it does  not  know  how  to
       handle all of the special debuild options.)

       The  program simply stashes the debuild and lintian options, and passes
       them to debuild when it is called  by  cvs-buildpackage.   All  of  the
       standard  debuild  options may be used (as listed below), but note that
       the root command specified by any --rootcmd or -r  command-line  option
       will be passed as an option to cvs-buildpackage.  The first non-debuild
       option detected will signal the start of the cvs-buildpackage options.

       The selection of the root command is slightly subtle: if there are  any
       command-line  options,  these will be used.  If not, then if cvs-build-
       package is set up to use a default root command,  that  will  be  used.
       Finally,  if  neither  of these are the case, then debuild will use its
       procedures to determine an appropriate command,  as  described  in  its

       See  the manpages for debuild(1) and cvs-buildpackage for more informa-
       tion about the behaviour of each.

       The following are the debuild options recognised by  cvs-debuild.   All
       cvs-buildpackage and lintian options are simply passed to the appropri-
       ate program.  For explanations of the meanings of these variables,  see

       --no-conf, --noconf

       --rootcmd=gain-root-command, -rgain-root-command


       --preserve-envvar=var, -evar

       --set-envvar=var=value, -evar=value

       --lintian, --no-lintian

       --ignore-dirname, --check-dirname
              These should not be needed, but it is provided nevertheless.
