Hi Chow,

I have reported this previously (see [geany-plugins-Bugs-2783412])
when Enrico and I decided that we didn't know enough autotools to fix
it quickly, but now that your expertise is available maybe you can fix

Basically the plugins cannot be used with a version of geany that is
installed in any directory other than the standard, if there is also a
version installed in the standard location.  ie geany configured with
--prefix=somewhere is fine but geany-plugins configured with
--prefix=somewhere still goes to /usr/lib and /usr/include instead of
somewhere/lib & somewhere/include.

This means that new versions can't be tested while there is still a
system installed version.

Essentially the plugins builder should respect --prefix if present
otherwise use pkg-config to find the installed version.
