Basically it is quite easy with the existing geany.nsi and the NSIS
package (Nullsoft Installer).

It only requires a Geany installation and a stripped down GTK tunetime
environment to be packed into the installer.
What this is, is documented at
Maybe we can adopt this to the self-compiled GTK environment.

I could work on this but would delay this a bit until past the 1.25
release. Simply to not break things before a release.
