 I may be wrong on this, but for me 'lintian clean' means without

 You can remove them.

 No. They are _copied there to the source_. So it's can be fixed: move
the 'ifneq' ... 'endif' block to the configure target, and do 'rm -f
config.sub config.guess' in the clean target.

 It's the same like above IMHO.

 There are a couple of bad problems with you package. Please fill in
Build-Depends correctly (at least you have to add libgtk2.0-dev and
autotools-dev ; haven't checked for others). Use the configure target
correctly (configure-stamp), and delete the stamp files just before
dh_clean. Also please delete the commented lines (ones that has no use).

 You do, but you can fix it easily. Please build your package with
pbuilder in a new chroot environment. With this, you can find the
correct build-dependencies and so on.
