Not sure. We had this in the past, then we chose to use the native GTK
dialogs on Windows as well. That's why that compile-time option exists.

I'll try to fix the issue soon so it will compile again.

What we could do is making the choice of the dialogs not a compile-time
option but a runtime-option. And maybe add a GUI preference for it so
more users get the ability to actually decide which dialogs they want
(I guess most of the Windows users don't compile Geany theirselves :D).
