NAME
       dpkg-checkbuilddeps - check build dependencies and conflicts

SYNOPSIS
       dpkg-checkbuilddeps [option...]  [control-file]

DESCRIPTION
       This  program  checks  the installed packages in the system against the
       build dependencies and build conflicts listed in the control  file.  If
       any are not met, it displays them and exits with a nonzero return code.

       By  default,  debian/control is read, but an alternate control filename
       may be specified on the command line.

OPTIONS
       --admindir=dir
              Change the location of the dpkg database  (since  dpkg  1.14.0).
              The default location is /var/lib/dpkg.

       -A     Ignore  Build-Depends-Arch and Build-Conflicts-Arch lines (since
              dpkg 1.16.4).  Use when only arch-indep packages will be  built,
              or combine with -B when only a source package is to be built.

       -B     Ignore  Build-Depends-Indep and Build-Conflicts-Indep lines. Use
              when only arch-dep packages will be built, or  combine  with  -A
              when only a source package is to be built.

       -I     Ignore built-in build depends and conflicts (since dpkg 1.18.2).
              These are implicit dependencies that are usually required  on  a
              specific  distribution,  the  so  called Build-Essential package
              set.

       -d build-depends-string

       -c build-conflicts-string
              Use the given  build  dependencies/conflicts  instead  of  those
              contained in the debian/control file (since dpkg 1.14.17).

       -a arch
              Check  build  dependencies/conflicts  assuming  that the package
              described in the control file is to be built for the given  host
              architecture  instead  of the architecture of the current system
              (since dpkg 1.16.2).

       -P profile[,...]
              Check build dependencies/conflicts  assuming  that  the  package
              described in the control file is to be built for the given build
              profile(s) (since  dpkg  1.17.2).   The  argument  is  a  comma-
              separated list of profile names.

       -?, --help
              Show the usage message and exit.

       --version
              Show the version and exit.

ENVIRONMENT
       DEB_BUILD_PROFILES
              If  set,  it will be used as the active build profile(s) for the
              package being built. It is a space  separated  list  of  profile
              names. Overridden by the -P option.
