You can usually do this without a patch for most software that uses the 
GNU autotools by adding the following to the package Makefile:

EXAMPLEDIR=		${PREFIX}/share/examples/solfege

This will cause "sysconfdir" to be overridden only during the install 
phase, which usually forces the example config files (or anything else 
that may get copied into ${sysconfdir}) to be copied into ${EXAMPLEDIR} 
instead.  See databases/openldap/Makefile for a concrete example of this.

Doing it this way instead of using a patch means one fewer patch to 
maintain :)
