Until recently I followed Debian Handbook debian/rules 'directly' guidelines for building the Debianized kernel:

https://kernel-handbook.alioth.debian.org/ch-common-tasks.html#s-common-official

--and still do for all other software I've backported; thus, I thought build of EFL DEBs as similar.

Then I began to use dpkg-buildpackage to build my Jessie-backports of Reiser4-patched Debian kernels due to debian/rules procedure unexpectedly failing to build subsequently newer kernel packages.

Notwithstanding, using dpkg-buildpackage to build EFL indeed does --enable-fb but does not build (after skipping referenced tests in this thread) the following two packages, which using debian/rules 'directly' *does* build (.1, of course, after dch):

efl-1.18.4-1.1-DEBs/efl-doc_1.18.4-1.1_all.deb
efl-1.18.4-1.1-DEBs/libelementary-data_1.18.4-1.1_all.deb

Probably irrelevant but just letting you know.

Anyhow, I appreciate all the helpful input from everyone involved. I was able to build EFL DEBs and I just have to alter certain variables and/or build environment to find a proper optimization.

Thank you all.


Best Professional Regards.
