If you put stuff (config-files) in $SPLINK_HOME/etc/system/local, that should most likely work fine.

However, you need to figure out which settings go where in a distributed setup - depending on which phase occurs where. There are some settings related to the Input Phase, others that only have meaning in the Parsing Phase, etc etc.
