Hello Karl,

I was looking at getting updated files into the Autoconf repo, and found
some really minor glitches in standards.texi.  Please consider the patch
below.  I noted that with it, the git links to config.guess and
config.sub work from within the info file, but not the PDF, as the
latter translates ';' to '%3b'.  Not sure whether that is a bug in
texinfo.tex or in gitweb.
