I am trying to make a package of a piece of software that I've (co-) written. I'm using
debuild -i -us -uc -b
And in principle that works fine. In order to shorten compilation time I'd like to debuild to run make in parallel (like I normally do by running
make -j4, for example).
I've found a few locations on the web that suggest the following:
debuild -eDEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="parallel=4" -us -uc -b debuild -j4 -us -uc -b
Another site suggested to add some code to the
debian/rules file that basically sets
MAKEFLAGS += -j4
However, none of these seems to work. Have I missed something? or should I change something in the autoconf/automake settings of the source?
