This is on purpose.
For development, I use a custom script to copy the headers. However, we
could add a custom action to Waf to copy/install the headers somewhere.
The question is where is 'somewhere' on Windows?
IMO it doesn't make any sense to install the headers by default into the
resulting directory, as this is usually used to create a release
installer and this doesn't need headers.

Would be a custom build action and maybe a destination path argument

Btw, the geany.pc is also not installed, so probably this should be done
in the same custom action.

Are these paths used at all on Windows? At least for me the generated
.pc file worked fine so far.
