Yes, this is a linux from scratch machine. All my X11 stuff is under 
/opt/X11 and this works fine, after setting up a few symlinks.

Just if that was not clear: I'm not exactly a newbie to compiling stuff 
myself and I have previously successfully compiled and installed 
geany-plugins and geany that way before. It's really the pango switch to 
meson/ninja that might irritate some packages, as previously I never had 
an issue.

Might well be that calling ./autoconf.sh fixes all that.
