The @prefix@ string is an autoconf value in the prototype for the
dcc_conf script that is changed by the configure script into the DCC
home directory.

Better than editing a copy of the autoconf prototype would be to 
sym-link /var/dcc/libexec/cron-dccd to /etc/cron.daily or otherwise
arrange to run the script built by ./configure.  That way, when
installing new versions of the DCC, you don't have to remember to
change something in a distant directory.  You need only remember your
parameters for configure and run it followed by `make install`.
