There isn't a software parameter that affects inductive voltage spikes.

You could:
- increase the gate resistor value; the mosfets will run hotter though
- put the diode, mosfet, and capacitor really close together in you power board layout
- add some sort of snubber, like an RC snubber as you mention - this will reduce efficiency somewhat

speaking of capacitors, I don't see any in your picture... are they just hidden in the picture?
