Building a package with cmake

Asked by Thomas Karl Pietrowski on 2013-11-21

Yesterday I made a recipe to build llvm from trunk. Well, the packaging files are not finished, but I found a curious output of debhelper as it creates a build folder and executes "cmake .. [...]". The output says there is no such a file or dir.
Which doesn't make sense to me. The only reason for that I can see is that source is to big to be branched.

You need to add cmake to your Build-Depends.

You are right. The code I use uses autoconf by default, but switching to cmake needs to be added to debian/control, too.
Thanks did noticed that!
