[Geany-devel] build geany-plugins on Windows

  Hopefully someone will correct me if wrong.  To work with autotools 
under windows, you need MSYS.  I have never had any luck building 
anything with MSYS, even after googling and reading the instructions.  
It seems the default plugins that ship with Geany are built when running 
ming32-make -f makefile.w32.

I'd like to thank you Nick for the information on building the plugins 
using waf.  It may be time to add waf to my server's tools so that it 
can compile the plug ins.

Hoping I added something useful
