For the command-line, this would be possible either by always using the 
same --settings-dir option (possibly via a shell script or alias) or 
using the global settings directory (/etc/xdg/ under Linux) once when 
setting up the toolchains (as root).
Creator, however, will not let you configure the location freely; it's 
fixed relative to Creator's own settings. This is because the Creator 
Kits are turned into qbs profiles and written to disk, assuming 
exclusive ownership of the respective files.
