How to build only one binary out of several provided in a source package?

Asked by Alan Pater on 2014-02-14

I am working on a patch for the kipi-plugins package. The source for that is digikam.

I would like to build just the kipiplugins package, but debuild builds the digikam package.

How do I tell debuild to just build the kipi-plugins package?

I suggest you look in the Makefile file. That determines how things are built, you can either comment lines out or make a new makefile to use.

Or there may be an option you can use on the makefile to only build the binary you want

Can you help with this problem?
