This has been done before, even though it is arguably quite tedious.
Look at the go-hugo package for inspiration.

I am working on, which is not
quite finished but will at least tell you what the dependencies are.

This would be somewhat questionable if not done by a developer.

You might try to get your upstream to vendor all dependencies, i.e.
put them in a vendor subdirectory. This is what Caddy has done, and it
has made packaging it trivial :)
