The things which immediately jumped out at me were:

- declaring a "custom" license when it is in fact MIT
- not quoting srcdir/pkgdir

Try to see if Pkg.build() can run in a "$srcdir" environment to "build"
the project in build(), complete with necessary runtime-generated files.
Then cp this over instead.

Anyway, you probably want to provide the files in source=() rather than
inlined through messy, difficult-to-read-and-review heredocs. It would
separate the data you're trying to install, from the process you use to
install it...
