First off, thanks for the excellent program.

There are a few problems with building geanylua right now. One is that I had to add '#define GETTEXT_PACKAGE "geany"' to /usr/include/geany/support.h. And as pointed out, it's installing in the legacy ~/.geany on Linux.

There's something else I'd like to request about geanylua. Trying to write a package for it is turning out to be a mess. I'm writing a PKGBUILD for the Arch Linux User Repository, and geanylua doesn't install like other programs. Basically it's breaking out of fakeroot and trying to install directly into the file system. If possible, could someone look into having this code compile like other programs so it can be generically packaged? All other plug-ins in current subversion build fine.

By the way, is this a good place to file bug reports and enhancement requests?
