No. The '-mms-bitfields' warnings aside, it fails with:

..\plugins\saveactions.c(30) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include
file: 'unistd.h': No such file or directory

So, we have Geany as geany-pplugins with do not compile with msvc, and
the msvcrt.dll problem pointed by Lex. Disabling the msvc detection
seems even more reasonable to me, for example:

    from waflib.Tools.compiler_c import c_compiler
    c_compiler['win32'] = ['gcc']

just before opt.tool_options('compiler_cc') in both wscript files.
