I do.
Some years ago, I tried playing around with MSYS and autotools on
Windows and gave up quickly. I know it must work in some way as others
use them but I failed to figure out how.
So, for Geany and also the plugins I use Waf which works quite well.

Of course, you need a Python installation and if you want to generate
the translation files as well, you need intltool and so also Perl. But
this is optional, on Windows.
