Not sure which bit you're having problems with.  Something like

nonobase_sysconf_DATA = myproject/config
        @command to create config file ...

Well, at install files, sysconf_* files are installed to ${sysconfdir},

     The directory for installing read-only data files that pertain to a
     single machine-that is to say, files for configuring a host.
     Mailer and network configuration files, `/etc/passwd', and so
     forth belong here.  All the files in this directory should be
     ordinary ASCII text files.  [...]

Hope that helps.
