KDE applications use a configuration framework that allows multiple search 
directories and merging of settings found in files in any of them.
See section on file hierarchy here [1].

In your case you could configure the setup you need once through the GUI, then 
locate the configuration file and install it into a "global" location.

Any instance of krfb will find it there and use those settings unless the 
user's local configuration says otherwise [2].

Given you mentioned "number of systems" and "recurring a lot" I wager the 
guess that this is a multi workstation setup scenario like at a company or 

In which case it might be of interest to subscribe to the KDE Enterprise 
mailinglist [3] which is a forum for system administrators to share 
experiences with their setups, etc.

[2] This can even be disabled, as the configuration framework allows more 
global files to restrict what local files can overwrite. See also [1]
