This is correct. This in no way implies installing to /usr though. > that's what I want: run dh_auto_install target from the upstream's Makefile > under root.

This is about chmod, chown etc. It still implies installing into debian/tmp. > I'm working on a pbuilder, so I create it, build a package an destroy it, no > problem if the env is modified. I assumed you are creating a package for Debian, not for local use. Packages for Debian must follow the guidelines, whether they are built inside a disposable chroot or not. If you are making a package for local use please always mention that on deban-mentors resources. -- WBR, wRAR
