       dh_usrlocal - migrate usr/local directories to maintainer scripts

       dh_usrlocal [debhelperoptions] [-n]

       dh_usrlocal is a debhelper program that can be used for building
       packages that will provide a subdirectory in /usr/local when installed.

       It finds subdirectories of usr/local in the package build directory,
       and removes them, replacing them with maintainer script snippets
       (unless -n is used) to create the directories at install time, and
       remove them when the package is removed, in a manner compliant with
       Debian policy. These snippets are inserted into the maintainer scripts
       by dh_installdeb. See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of debhelper
       maintainer script snippets.

       When the DEB_RULES_REQUIRES_ROOT environment variable is not
       (effectively) binary-targets, the directories in /usr/local will be
       handled as if they were owned by root:root (see below).

       When the DEB_RULES_REQUIRES_ROOT environment variable has an effective
       value of binary-targets, the owners, groups and permissions will be
       preserved with the sole exception where the directory is owned by

       If a directory is owned by root:root, then ownership will be determined
       at install time.  The ownership and permission bits will either be
       root:root mode 0755 or root:staff mode 02775.  The actual choice
       depends on whether the system has /etc/staff-group-for-usr-local (as
       documented in the Debian Policy Manual S9.1.2 since version 4.1.4)

       -n, --no-scripts
           Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.

       Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called
       between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple
       instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.
