tarballs -> tar files

In the GNU coding standards and maintainer information, it seems there
is exactly one occurrence of "tarball":

standards.texi:3710:still consider providing them in the release tarballs, for 
the benefit

In all other cases I can find, the term "tar files" is used.

Therefore I suggest s/tarballs/tar files/, for consistency.

(Thanks to Ineiev for finding this.) --best, karl.
