Dammit, I was so sure we got rid of that problem now :).

Ok, in 01cf9a9fdc6795b971cbad59585d33bfcb796b74 I reverted the part of
replacing forward by backward slashes for the geany.pc file. And
additionally I added a little hack to replace \ by / for the prefix if
on Windows.

I hope that actually really improves the situation. If not, I'd be happy
to accept a patch to get it fixed :).
