Well, @Drive trick works perfectly if we put Geany and MinGW in a USB
drive and keep their path static. What I want is a folder/archive that
can be used in an arbitrary path of Windoze, i.e., a relocatable
portable app. Such app is much easier for redistribution.

It sounds like you are unhappy with MinGW. What's the exact problem you met?
