Configurator is a perfectly cromulent word. ^_^

Actually, GNOME calls their configuration application a configurator.  Maybe 
they don't anymore, I haven't used GNOME in many years now.  

About 7 years ago I started at a software company doing CRM applications, and 
starting calling their configuration program the configurator.  The guy I 
shared an office with laughed at me, but soon he was calling it the 
configurator, and before long it spread through the rest the developers.  
When the next version of the software was branched in the version control, 
the configuration program was renamed "configurator" in the repository.

And most recently, I was forced to do some work on an MS SQL server because 
the admin was out sick, and actually ran into an MS program whose title bar 
read "Configurator".
