autoconf 2.50 documentation nits re Solaris versions

Subject: autoconf 2.50 documentation nits re Solaris versions
Date: Fri, 1 Jun 2001 14:59:11 -0700 (PDT)

The autoconf manual has a few minor nits when referring to Solaris
versions.  Following normal convention, it says "SunOS" for version 4
and "Solaris" for later SunOS versions, but in one place it strays
from this convention.  It attempts to identify the version of the
shell with "uname -a", but "showrev -c /bin/sh" is the proper command
for that.  And it says "Solaris 2.8" one place where it should say
"Solaris 8".

Here is a patch.
