What didn't you understand?

I basically just argued against your arguments, that it will be more 
work to put the paths in, by filling the entry boxes with nice default 
values (such as the project's or file's path), plus by adding a few 
variables to expand to suitable paths (like %e already does for the 
current file, %p could expand to the path of the current file).

That's all to free the user of tight limitations of Geany (w.r.t to 
building) and to support even unconventional build system, which I know 
a few of.

Best regards.
