I don't know why I don't have these problems. The missing gdk-pixbuf
includes might be due newer GTK version you used. I build Geany on
Windows with GTK 2.16 which was the recommended version since they
changed quite some stuff in 2.18. Not sure what's the current status
about this.
Anyway, after testing I'll apply at least the patch character parts of
the patches.

The makefile.win32 Makefile set doesn't support installing.
I use Waf on Windows to build Geany and then simply use 'python waf
install' which installs Geany into geany-0.21 of the current directory.
From there, you can copy all files from there into your normal
installation or whatever you want to do with it :).
