What about putting pg_settings documentation at the bottom of:
   ->Administrators Guide
     ->Server run-time environment
       ->run-time configuration
just before the Planner and optimizer tuning subsection?

http://developer.postgresql.org/docs/postgres/runtime-config.html

I think at some point there should be a consolidated section on system 
views, but since they are scattered at the moment, this seems like the 
most logical choice to me. Comments?
