GNU-specific paths on paths.h

It seems that the generic paths.h is not suitable for the GNU system
because it contains paths with /usr and other directories that are not
present in any of its distributions (as Debian GNU/Hurd)

I made up this, which adds the *_ROOT paths needed by some GNU software
packages and sets paths to what is usual to have in the GNU system.

It's a patch against the generic paths.h, which should be made into a
gnu-specific paths.h, but i don't know the glibc build system to add it

Please could you add a GNU-specific paths.h and set the makefiles to use
that when the system is GNU/Hurd?
