if I understand it correctly you'd like to have a single directory
with all the emacs related stuff.
Best solution I've come up with so far is to have a emacs directory in
my home and the .emacs is actually just symlink to
~/emacs/thismachine.el I work on different computers so I'm using
different init files for each of them. General settings which are not
machine specific are in separate files. This way all settings and any
other data are in one directory which I've got in version control and
can easily synchronise over different machines. `it also involves
setting up some variables in the init file like separate
custom-sesttings, dictionaries load paths and so.
Would this be a solution for you?
