These can go, since they're empty anyway.

src_compile() {

This is exactly like the default src_compile for EAPI=0, so it should be removed too.

Speaking of EAPI, it should probably be set to 4, and then the || die() after dobin can go away too.

What is RESTRICT=mirror intended to do? It's GPL-2, so redistribution/mirroring should be freely allowed.

The default src_install is no longer a no-op in EAPI4, so you can actually drop the whole thing, and portage will figure out what to do.

Other minor things:

* Copyright year should be updated

* Description is a little too long

* The IUSE variable is required, even if it's empty

This would be an easy review, so I'd suggest submitting it to the sunrise[1] overlay. There is will be reviewed by a Gentoo developer, giving it a better chance of making it into the portage tree.
