       dh_shlibdeps - calculate shared library dependencies

       dh_shlibdeps [debhelper options] [-Lpackage] [-ldirectory] [-Xitem]
       [-- params]

       dh_shlibdeps is a debhelper program that is responsible for calculating
       shared library dependencies for packages.

       This program is merely a wrapper around dpkg-shlibdeps(1) that calls it
       once for each package listed in the control file, passing it a list of
       ELF executables and shared libraries it has found.

       -uparams, --dpkg-shlibdeps-params=params
       -- params
	   Pass "params" to dpkg-shlibdeps(1).

       -Xitem, --exclude=item
	   Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from
	   being passed to dpkg-shlibdeps. This will make their dependencies
	   be ignored.	This may be useful in some situations, but use it with
	   caution. This option may be used more than once to exclude more
	   than one thing.

	   Before dpkg-shlibdeps is run, LD_LIBRARY_PATH will have added to it
	   the specified directory (or directories -- separate with colons).
	   This is useful for multi-binary packages where a library is built
	   in one package and another package contains binaries linked against
	   said library. Relative paths will be made absolute for the benefit
	   of dpkg-shlibdeps.

	   Note that the directory given should be the complete or relative
	   path to a directory that contains the library. See example below.

       -Lpackage, --libpackage=package
	   Use the shlibs file automatically generated by dh_makeshlibs for
	   the named package as a kind of automatically generated shlibs.local
	   file. You can use this switch in concert with the -l switch to make
	   dpkg-shlibdeps find a library built as part of the current package,
	   and get the shlibs information.  See example below.

       Suppose that your source package produces libfoo1, libfoo-dev, and lib
       foo-bin binary packages. libfoo-bin links against libfoo1, and should
       depend on it. In your rules file, first run dh_makeshlibs, then

	       dh_shlibdeps -L libfoo1 -l debian/libfoo1/usr/lib

       This will have the effect of generating automatically a shlibs file for
       libfoo1, and using that file and the libfoo1 library in the debian/lib
       foo1/usr/lib directory to calculate shared library dependency informa

       debhelper(7), dpkg-shlibdeps(1)

       This program is a part of debhelper.
