I think so. But please do not put them into the upstream's directory.
Everything that you add to the software to make it a Debian package should
stay in the debian/ directory. Except perhaps config.guess and such files
that you changes on purpose.
Just checked which files you change that are outside the debian/ directory:
zcat lopster_1.2.2-2.diff.gz | grep ^--- | grep -v debian
I don't think that these files should be changed. Please
read "zless /usr/share/doc/autotools-dev/README.Debian.gz" on how to deal
with autotools-built packages.
If you feel you need to change source files (like src/log.c) then please
use some patch manager. I personally prefer "dpatch" - others use "quilt".
Otherwise you will have trouble once a new upstream version is released
because you need to find out which parts you had changed.

Stay a while in some IRC channels and then judge your english again. :)
