The configuration of Lazarus is created, at the first time, in
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\lazarus\
You can modify these files, manually, or you can use the IDE to modify them.
After, copy this folder to other place and use the parameter
--pcp=<your new config folder> like this (on Windows):

start lazarus --pcp=c:\your_config_folder

You can use the enviroment variable PPC_CONFIG_PATH to set where is
the fpc.cfg file.

I use FPC 2.5.1 and Laz 0.9.29.
