That's OK. I was going to reply with something along those lines but
probably not as efficient.

The "secret" with sharing Delphi project config files is for all to
agree on a project folder structure whereby all the search paths etc can
be made relative to the project folder. Do that and suddenly all the
woes and furious complaints to Borland to fix things go away. They
(Borland) fixed this very early in Delphi's life by allowing relative paths.

I'm developing on a couple of machines, including VMware sessions with
totally different hard drive layouts but never have a problem,
"What Never?"
"Well hardly ever"
(To quote Gilbert and Sullivan, seeing we are being a little literary.)
