Not really more educated but IIRC I mostly ignored custom prefix/destdir
variables in the Waf script for Windows. My idea was that nobody will
use it anyway on their own and so I hardcoded many paths to install
stuff really only in geany-plugins-${version} in the CWD. This directory
is only meant to be packaged in the installer and nothing more.

Sorry, I really didn't spend much efforts in keeping the Windows Waf
script stuff in general purpose, it's rather tailored for creating a
installer instead.
