you could use rsync,
or subversion,

and actually keep your configurations all held on such a central repository.
you can then actually update the configuration from any one of your servers
and get them all to autometically get the latest version... be that with a
frequent cronjob that checks for changes (and if there have been any, download
them!) or from a forced update.   this way you also have a centralised way of 
seeing what changed, when and who by.
