I'm using autotools to create package of my software then i wanted to make debian package but after runing debuild i get those warnings:

Now running lintian...
W: minorin: hardening-no-relro usr/bin/minorin
W: minorin: hardening-no-fortify-functions usr/bin/minorin

google pointed me to this:

This package provides an ELF binary that lacks the "read-only relocation" link flag. This package was likely not built with the default Debian compiler flags defined by dpkg-buildflags. If built using dpkg-buildflags directly, be sure to import LDFLAGS.

so do I have to just copy the output of dpkg-buildflags to my src/Makefile.am or is there a way to automatically include it...

That's a common error, as seen here.

The Hardening problem's well explained here, so simply place the following on your debian/rules.

export DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS = hardening=+all
include /usr/share/dpkg/buildflags.mk
