Why not just have a configuration directive which would allow the user to specify where these
cache file reside?  That way each setup could intelligently set the value to match their environment.
 You could then report an error during startup if the directory cannot be accessed.

Configuration directive--user tells Apache where they want the logs.

The log directory is typically used for logs.

P.S.  While you are creating configuration directives for where to place the cache files,
you might also want to provide some means to reign in the disk usage for the cache--a max
size perhaps.
