Which are the really server-dependent and which are the site-dependent

If you move a site from a dev to a live (or test) server you might need 
to change any of the settings. That's why you can have those in a file 
called typo3conf/AdditionalConfiguration.php
This is loaded after the LocalConfiguration.php and you can use it to 
override any setting.
