Here's how I solved that problem when I was working with smb.conf.
Obviously the copy action is before the editfiles action. And this
method may not work if you need your edits to be nested or in a
specific order.

copy:
  any::
  # Samba configuration
        $(FileSource)/common/usr/local/etc/smb.conf
        dest=/var/cfengine/work/smb.conf
        server=$(FileServer)

editfiles:
  any:: 
        { 
        /usr/local/etc/smb.conf
        AutoCreate
        EmptyEntireFilePlease
        InsertLine "hostname = $(host)"
        InsertFile "/var/cfengine/work/smb.conf"
        DefineClasses "newsamba"
        }
