Set license as 'custom'
and then copy the license file to

Also yo should add "" around every statement that has pkgdir or srcdir in
This is due to that if user build build this package on a dir, wich name
a space example cp  command can become like
cp /home/cave-johnson/aur builds/../*ttf /home.../aur builds/pkg...
as you see this would copy file /home/cave-johnson/aur
builds/../*ttf and /home/cave-johnson/aur (2nd time XD)
to folder builds/pkg... and that not we want. so add "" so
that the space charter is treated as part of the filename and not as
for arguments.
