if you are on linux, something like this would be fairly quick and easy to use...

sudo find / -type d \( -path .git -o -path .svn -o -path .cvs \) -prune -o -type 
f \( -iname "*.conf" -o -iname "*.cfg" -o -iname "*.cnf" \)

it should find every *.conf, *.cfg, and *.cnf file on the system while skipping 
all .git, .svn, and .cvs directories... you really don't need to dig through all 
of those, in most cases, ya know? ;)

once you have the list of matching files, then you can work through it looking 
for lazarus and fpc related configuration files... remember that not all of them 
will start with laz or fp...

while testing the above on my system which i've recently removed lazaruz and fpc 
from for needed drive space, i found a leftover fppkg.cfg in my ~/.config 
directory... knowing that directory was used for some things then lead me to 
look at it closer... i found a lazarus directory in there with a reg.xml 
apparently from the jedi tool(s) along with a lhelp directory with a conf for 
the lazaruz lhelp tool...

i also found a few left over fpc.cfg files in several project directories but 
those i kept because they contained only information on the project and nothing 
specific to lazarus or fpc...

hopefully the above find command will be helpful to you... i keep a copy of it 
in one of my hint files so i don't lose it from my command history ;)
