Multiple Machines

This is sort of a "best practices" kind of question so all comments are
welcome.  I'm wondering what folks are doing when setting up multiple
(more than 1, but less than 10) machines.

Consider, for example, some ordinary files such as the following:

    /root/.bashrc           # toor account
    /root/.bash_profile     # toor account
    /etc/fstab              # nfs mount entries

Some files are identical, some require different permissions, and some
(like fstab) consist of customizations that need to be added.

Short of enabling root ssh logins or writing makefiles, what would be the
best approach to handing the above?
