I've committed Lex Trotman's geany.txt changes in the build-system
branch, slightly edited.


I made some formatting changes:
.. note:: syntax (space after ..)
break lines - I used the 'Format->Send selection to command' with the
fmt command.

On to the changes - in general I agree with them, but some points:

1. 'Make Commands' is mentioned, perhaps this should be renamed 'Global
Commands', as these may well be nothing to do with 'make'.

+* From the user preferences if the user has make commands defined.
+* From the global preferences/defaults.

Not sure about this - currently we only have user prefs for geany.conf.
Maybe global prefs too, but would it be confusing?

3. Do we need the table of default filetype build commands? If so, IMO
it should be autogenerated and included/referenced from geany.txt
rather than writing by hand.

4. I think 'Project Make' should be configured from the Project
Properties dialog. In this case the global Make command could be
grayed out in the Configure Commands dialog.

+Remember that menu item two (default the 'Make Custom Target' item)
+will pop up a dialog to ask for additional targets/options when invoked
+allowing you to add to the command you define here.

Should this just be the 'Make Custom Target' item? (not menu item two)
