inherit distutils
I'm not sure is supported for the project as it's empty? So
distutils does not look correct to me.

You have a makefile (inherit no classes, that;s the default) or
Cmakelists (inherit cmake) or ./configure (inherit autotools, though it
expects a and not a configure directly).

Then, what you want to check is that your binpac binary is installed in
${WORKDIR}/sysroot-dirs. If it's not, you've to find where the binary is
installed (if it is) and fix the Cmake/autotools scripts to install in
the correct directory (one of the directories in STAGING_DIRS as a
"subdirectory" of ${D}) or add said directory to the ones installed in
other recipes' sysroot (STAGING_DIRS).
