It must support the following make targets: clean Clean up the source tree, by undoing any change done by any of the build and binary targets. This target will be called with root privileges. build-indep Build architecture independent files required to build any architecture independent binary package. If there are no architecture indepdenent binary packages to gener‐ ate, the target must still exist but do nothing. This target must not require root privileges. build-arch Build architecture dependent files required to build any architecture dependent binary package. If there are no architecture dependent binary packages to gener‐ ate, the target must still exist but do nothing. This target must not require root privileges. build Build architecture independent and dependent files, either by depending (at least transitively) on build-indep and/or build-arch or by inlining what those targets would do. This target must not require root privileges. binary-indep Build architecture independent binary packages. This target must depend (at least transitively) on either build-indep or build. This target will be called with root privileges. binary-arch Build architecture dependent binary packages. This target must depend (at least transitively) on either build-arch or build. This target will be called with root privileges. binary Build architecture independent and dependent binary packages, either by depending (at least transitively) on binary-indep and/or binary-arch or by inlining what those targets would do. This target will be called with root privileges.
