I use the dpatch system to make the requested changes in the sources

Now lintian complains that "config.guess and 1 more" are changed, but
not by dpatch. I suppose that these files get changed in the build process.

What is the correct way to get this problem solved?

You can simply gunzip /usr/share/doc/dpatch/examples/dpatch/01_config.dpatch.gz and put it in debian/patches (and list it in 00list) and it will take care of things.

I did that, but config.guess and config.sub are still changed during the build process. What could go wrong? Which files doI need to have a close look at?

TIA and best regards
