Ah yes, there was that issue. My intention was for it to use Geany's prefix,
simply because there really isn't a point in stuffing plugins where you don't
have a Geany installation. e.g. Geany in /usr, but geany-plugins at /usr/local
would cause some confusion. Hence, what was done was:

1. autodetect Geany's ${pkglibdir} and install plugins in there.
2. Allow manual specification of Geany's prefix by

Come to think of it, I don't really remember why I wanted to use
--with-geany-prefix separately from --prefix. Perhaps --with-geany-prefix's
functionality should be shifted to --prefix instead. What do you think? That
should fix all your issues.

Kind regards,
