make-stds.texi minor update

From: Ralf Wildenhues
Subject: make-stds.texi minor update

User-agent: Mutt/1.5.11

The Makefile.maint (that is more or less) shared between coreutils,
CPPI, Bison, and Autoconf, has a check to prefer the spelling of
`file system' over `filesystem'.  Automake ships `make-stds.texi'.
I assume some consensus over this rule has been established?

OK to commit this trivial patch to fix the writing, so we can import
this back into Autoconf?


        * doc/make-stds.texi: Bump copyright year.
        (Command Variables, Directory Variables): Fix spelling
        `filesystem' -> `file system'.
