The Geany include paths are suspicious, they should start with
"/user/kklein/geany/1.33/", not "//".  There's likely something fishy
with your installation; how did you configure it?  --prefix="" DESTDIR=
/user/kklein/geany/1.33/?  If so, it's not a great solution, you should
have been using --prefix=/user/kklein/geany/1.33/, as DESTDIR is
basically for making an archive out of an installation (e.g. handy for
creating distribution package like .debs or RPMs).

If you didn't, that might be a very bizarre bug, and if you can
reproduce it we'd like to know.

At any rate, the right fix is to have a proper installation.  If it is
otherwise good, you can try and edit
/user/kklein/geany/1.33/lib/pkgconfig/geany.pc and change the "prefix="
line to "/user/kklein/geany/1.33/"

After this is fixed, all should be fine.

This looks good to me, so you should not be setting GLIB_CFLAGS at all
(or, if you *really* want, to that value above, minus the -lglib-2.0,
which is the LIBS part).
