(I think) I understand what you mean, but Andrew might not. To put a finer
point on it, `install -dm755` is unnecessary, because install's `-D` flag
creates directories anyway. For example, this:

    install -dm755 "$pkg_license_path"
    install -Dm644 "$src_license_path" "$pkg_license_path"/OFL.txt

Could be replaced with this:

    install -Dm644 "$src_license_path" "$pkg_license_path"/OFL.txt
