I am doing something very similar which seems to work:

1) I create a custom-licenses dir in my layer which contains custom 

2) add custom license path to layer.conf:
LICENSE_PATH += " ${LAYERDIR}/custom-licenses"

3) In the recipe I do this:
LICENSE = "hello-license"

But I don't think that the beginline,endline makes a difference.

Can you try pointing at ${THISIR}/../../<where ever your custom-licenses 
dir is> and see if this makes any difference?
