We should have high-level functions such as GetUserStoragePath and

I agree with this, but...
And I would suggest that the different implementations of these functions
are switched on the identity of the target platform rather than specific
build settings. E.g:
... not with that. Every distro of every OS has the potential to
have different storage paths. Encoding them into the C is not going
to be helpful, either to distro maintainers, or to the poor people
having to read the code.
Luke's idea about having a "support" direectory (or whatever) and
subdirectories within it is sensible.
