FWIW I pushed the changes I did myself (hey ;) to
https://github.com/b4n/geany/commits/wip/autotools-mingw-cross just in
case it can be of some use.

Enrico: would the change on geany_private.rc from
break Waf or something else?  (yes, I could check by running a VM, but I
can also ask first :)

When we merge #356 we can probably drop libiberty altogether as the only
code we have that definitively depend on `fnmatch()` is in
`tm_file_entry.c` (which is unused, and removed by the PR).  BTW, if I'm
not mistaken our check for fnmatch are currently wrong on any platforms, as:

1) the check is not a strict requirement, yet I believe it is required
2) it never defines HAVE_FNMATCH yet it's what CTags' strlist checks for
(though it's not a strict requirement in CTags, it just make the test
useless there)

It'd be easy to fix however, but if we remove it in two dais it doesn't
matter much.
