We try to support ANSI C and so support any compatible compiler out
there. Though, some years ago I tried compiling with MSVCC on Windows
and Geany didn't compile out-of-the-box. I don't remember the exact
problems but I also didn't care enough. MSVCC is probably not worth to
be supported :D.
But there are still other compilers like Intel's icc or suncc (is it
called suncc? well, the compiler on Solaris).

Do you want to integrate these flags into the build system? I don't
think this is a good idea. Such flags should be set outside of the
build system by the developer/user, not automatically.
This is why they are mentioned in HACKING.

We could maybe add a little wrapper script into the scripts/ directory
which sets a bunch of compiler options we like, for convenience.

Below is a list of flags I currently use for Geany though I didn't
touch this list for months actually.

export CFLAGS="-Wall -O2 -g -pipe -march=athlon64 \
	-fno-common \
	-funit-at-a-time \
	-Waggregate-return \
	-Wdeclaration-after-statement \
	-Wdisabled-optimization \
	-Wfloat-equal \
	-Wformat=2 \
	-Wformat-nonliteral \
	-Wformat-security \
	-Winit-self \
	-Winline \
	-Wmissing-field-initializers \
	-Wmissing-format-attribute \
	-Wmissing-include-dirs \
	-Wmissing-noreturn \
	-Wmissing-prototypes \
	-Wnested-externs \
	-Wpointer-arith \
	-Wredundant-decls \
	-Wshadow \
	-Wsign-compare \
