    The config file locations of all emulators are confusing. For example, the config file of dgen is stored under configs/all. The right path should be configs/megadrive:

    $rootdir/configs/all/dgenrc should be
    $rootdir/configs/megadrive/dgenrc

    Emulators like gngeo and gpsp or emulation station store there files under %homedir%/.<emulator> or in the application folder. It is possible to create symlinks under $rootdir/configs/<emulator>.
    $rootdir/configs/all/gngeo/<symlink to $rootdir/.gngeo/gngeorc>
    $rootdir/configs/all/gba/<symlink to $rootdir/emulators/gpsp/raspberrypi/keys.ini>
    $rootdir/configs/<symlink to $rootdir/emulators/RetroArch/config>

    So every config file can be found at the same location.

    You could do it yourself, but dgen/n64 and stuff are not part of retroarch, so thought arnt “ment” to be where you say, though it would be nice…
