[Geany-Devel] Compiling 1.23.1 under Windows

I tried to $subject, and ran into small problems.

First, geany_private.rc now includes geany.exe.manifest, but the 1.23.1
bzip lacks this file. Maybe the gzip archive has it, I havent tested.
Copying a manifest from the current git works fine. It has the geany
version set to though.

"C:\MINGW\BIN\windres.exe: can't open file `geany.exe.manifest': No such
file or directory"


Second, both the mail announcement for 1.23.1 and the archive files
are dated after May 05, but wscript lacks the code which alters the C
compiler detection under Win~1. So waf properly detects msvc on my
system, and Geany fails to build. Speaking of which, it'll be a good
idea to change the C++ compiler detection as well - I don't think a mix
of gcc-compiled Geany sources and msvc-compiled Scintilla will work.

If we don't want to release (or 1.23.2) ASAP, I'll change and
test the compiler detection under Win~1 tomorrow.
