The LICENSE file is optional, you only need to include it if you want the 
end user to be forced to accept the license before installation.

Also, the external-links file is optional as well, that stuff is magically
auto-built, and you only need to specify it when you have some extra links
you want to create from the PBI -> LOCALBASE (/usr/local)
