Build-Depends-Indep

Quick Info

Sub-Package
Format

The Build-Depends-Indep field is used to define a list of dependencies required when building architecture independent packages.

In general this field is not useful because when initiating a build, it installs the Build-Depends packages already and it is very likely that this list includes all the packages required to build the architecture independent packages.
