You haven't moved all patches to debian/patches.
Your diff.gz still patches files directly

Btw, the handling of config.{guess,sub} is a bit weird imho.
You update it conditionally in autotools: and unconditionally in
As you have a Build-Depends on autotools-dev, I'd suggest to save a copy
in autotools: and *restore* the copies in clean-patched, so it doesn't
end up in the final diff.gz.
