Lintian ReportsBETA

illegal-variable

With debhelper compatibility level >= 13 (and also dh-exec before it) several files in the ./debian folder support the expansion of variables. Unfortunately, people sometimes confuse the DEB_BUILD_* variables with the similarly-named DEB_HOST_* variables.

Some conditions are difficult to detect but it is never correct to use DEB_BUILD_MULTIARCH in debian/*.install or in debian/*.links.

Please use DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH instead of DEB_BUILD_MULTIARCH.

For more information please consult:
