port kdevcustombuildsystem.desktop to new .json format

Extract from

Having the metadata baked into the plugin allows us to not use KServiceTypeTrader (which handles the searching through the sycoca cache) but to ask QPluginLoader directly. Right now, we’re still using sycoca for the lookup, but this mechanism allows us to move away from it in the future.

I can do other plugins as well.

  projectmanagers/custom-buildsystem/custombuildsystemplugin.cpp 3f85e50 



build, run, plugin is loaded without the warning at startup saying that the plugin use the old .desktop file based metadata.
