nginx - creating a package with fpm

installation of fpm our tool to build deb packages

first we install the dependencies

apt-get -y install ruby ruby-dev rubygems build-essential
gem install --no-document fpm

verify installation

fpm --version

dependencies for the modules we want to add

apt install libgd-dev libgeoip-dev

using makefile for a simple build recipe:

NAME=nginx
VERSION=1.14.2
