I've had this problem before several times.  It's most likely related to 
you not having installed Geany but it thinks it's going to be installed 
somewhere (/usr/local by default).  Here's what I would do:

Assuming you will install it into `~/geanydev`

$ cd /where/geany/source/is
$ ./configure --prefix=/home/your-username/geanydev
$ make
$ make install
$ ~/geanydev/bin/geany -c ~/.config/geanydev

You'll have to use the same prefix with any plugins you install, or you 
can set the "Extra plugin path" in Preferences->General->Startup to 
point to where you're plugins are.
