Yeah :).
The help text for this option is completely correct and IIRC this
option is older than Geany's plugin API.
I added it long time ago more or less just out of curiosity to check
what and how Geany compile with these flags set.

We could discuss about the relevance of this option but well, there are
more important things to talk about. It just doesn't harm as long as
nobody uses it :). If you want to remove it, feel free to do so.
