Does this have to be global?

As the path is pretty obvious (get_object_directory() + "/pack"),
we could however also construct it again in the signal handler.

I would advise against doing that. The recomputation would call malloc(), which is not async-signal-safe. (It would not be the first case where we call "forbidden" functions from signal handlers, but we need not pile more on top of them.)
