(defmacro example (a b c &body d) nil)

(example a

You could evaluate in emacs: (put 'example 'lisp-indent-function 3)

You could put these forms in the local variable section in your source files, 
;; Local Variables:
;; eval: (put 'example 'lisp-indent-function 3)
;; End:
but this is not convenient.

Insteadn for my Common Lisp symbols, I keep the indentation parameters
in files named lisp.indentations, and I have the following functions
in ~/.emacs to load all the lisp.indentations found in the file system
hierarchy from the current directory up.

(require 'cl)

(defun cl-indent (symbol num-forms)
Put on the SYMBOL and its lower case and upper case variants
a 'lisp-indent-function property set to NUM-FORMS.
  (dolist (property '(lisp-indent-function common-lisp-indent-function))
    (put symbol property num-forms)
    (put (intern (string-downcase (symbol-name symbol))) property num-forms)
    (put (intern (string-upcase   (symbol-name symbol))) property num-forms)))

(defun* read* (stream &optional (eof-error-p t) eof-value ignored)
  (handler-case (read stream)
    (end-of-file (err)  (if eof-error-p
                            (error err)

(defun %batch-cl-indent (&rest indent-symbols-list)
  (dolist (item indent-symbols-list)
    (let ((indent (car item)))
      (dolist (sym (cdr item))
        (cl-indent sym indent)
        (let ((p (position (character ":") (symbol-name sym))))
          (when p
            (cl-indent (intern (subseq (symbol-name sym) (1+ p)))

(defmacro* do-directories-up ((var dir-path &optional result) &body body)
DO:     Evaluates body with var bound to dir-path, then dir-path's parent, 
        and so on up to the root directory.
RETURN: The evaluation of the result form.
  `(do ((,var ,dir-path
             (if (string-match "^\\(.*/\\)[^/]+/$" ,var)
                 (match-string 1 ,var)
      ((string-equal "" ,var) ,result)

(defun load-lisp-indentations ()
  "Processes a lisp.indentations file, 
in the current directory, or in a parent."
  (do-directories-up (dir default-directory)
    (let ((file (concat dir "lisp.indentations")))
      ;; (message "file = %S" file)
      (when (file-exists-p file)
          (let ((count (length (buffer-list)))) ; is there a better way?
            (find-file file)
            (goto-char (point-min))
            (let ((killp (/= count (length (buffer-list)))))
                     for clause = (read* (current-buffer) nil (current-buffer))
                     until (eql clause (current-buffer))
                     do (message "(%%batch-cl-indent '%S)" clause)
                     do (%batch-cl-indent clause))
                (when killp (kill-buffer (current-buffer)))))))))))
