I'm not wholly opposed to making the change, but nobody thought it was important enough to send a patch, so I'm going to close this as wont-fix.

It's not just the Brits.   The other spelling is correct in most English-speaking countries; Ireland, Australia, India, New Zealand, Canada for example.    The USA is in the minority.  But, patches welcome if you want to support both spellings.

configure supports both of these flags


but only the British spelling version of


which is very confusing.
If a user misspells the flag, configure reports no error,
but the flag has no effect.

If you are only going to support one spelling,
then the American spelling should rule (sorry, Brits!)
