FTP,HTTP → HTTPS in Automake doc and code

Paul Eggert
I installed into Automake 'master' a patch to prefer https: URLs to ftp: and
http: URLs. It's a long patch so I won't bore the mailing list with it. Details
and justification are here:

https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/automake.git/commit/?id=199e7a445040270fa5ef67623c56cde40d765199

Thanks for taking care of that.

IMO it is important that <https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html>
reflects that change too.  AIUI this page serves as a model for GPL
license notices.

Yes, that would be good. Unfortunately I don't know who's in charge of that URL.
