I think the hardcoded string should be set at configure time. If you do it properly (#define FAKE_XDG_STANDARDPATH "/where/ever"), you can even  provide a default configure set-up where the code behaves exactly as it does now:

    //prepend the hardcoded XDG-inspired standardpath FAKE_XDG_STANDARDPATH
    // define the default standardpath for this platform

This adds a bit of complexity, but having a default configuration that just has some additional lines without effect should make acceptance easier, I guess.
