Okay, I managed to create an installer for a Geany GTK3 build. \o/

Some additional observerations:
- must set prefix to $PWD/geany-1.25 (then make && make install)
and rename to Authors.txt etc.
- copy geany.gtkrc to geany-1.25/data (doesn't seem to be installed 
- the installer wrongly reports that it ships GTK 2.24
- the installer geany lacks some icons
- the installer geany runs slow because gtk/glib spam a console window 
with warnings like this "Gtk: Error loading icon 'image-missing' for 
stock: Symbol Ä>>image-missing<<Ä nicht im Thema Adwaita enthalten" 
(english: Symbol image-missing not contained in Adwaita theme)

Best regards
