I do not know the specifics, so just for references:

The license that matter is the license of ALL the files that are needed
at build time.

No. You promised something (not to distribute the files) and got
something in exchange (the SDK).

If the license were a copyleft license, then the people who are setting
the EULA would be violating that copyleft. But that would be an issue
between them and the copyright holders of the copylefted files, you are
not allowed to judge that by yourself. And this particular license does
not looks like copyleft to me.
