When we upgrade (someday) to 2.16, why not make VTE a compile time
option only? I can understand why somebody would like to compile Geany
without vte support, but since all novadays gtk+ terminal emulators are
based on vte, making it a run-time option seems like overkill to me. It
was a good thing, several years ago...

That will require some work, of course: replacing if (vf->func != NULL),
cleaning up the vte_info and vc checks. I volunteer.
