Farewell then. It served us well.

Due to the slow process creation under Windows, and the relatively slow 
handling of text files under MSYS2, building Geany with autotools took 
up to 30 minutes on my old machine, several times slower than Linux _or 
Waf under Windows_. I've got a new machine recently.

(makefile.win32 still exists, but for Geany only, not the plugins)
