i think the commit should be reverted. freebsd is an international project
and by turning comments that were made by people using british english spelling
into american english spelling, this commit implies that freebsd prefers a
certain spelling. expecially, if the comments came from someone who lives in a
native english speaking country, changing the perfectly valid spelling into
american english might be offensive.

just my 0.02 $ though.
