Confirmed with @sysconfdir@ make install performs the proper substitution. Unless I am missing something here, this resolves the issue of send-pr not finding the config.

Wed 08 Nov 2017 03:19:33 PM UTC, original submission:  

I believe you need the following:
Index: send-pr.sh
RCS file: /sources/gnats/gnats/gnats/send-pr.sh,v
retrieving revision 1.13
diff -r1.13 send-pr.sh
< CONFIGFILES="${sysconfdir}/gnats/send-pr.conf ${HOME}/.send-pr.conf"

> CONFIGFILES="@sysconfdir@/gnats/send-pr.conf ${HOME}/.send-pr.conf"

I'm checking now, but as is on the system sysconfdir is not defined and as such it is searching for the config file in /gnats/send-pr.conf
