d6d2d69 Spelling correction for consistency with pod/perldebguts.pod.
5baf666 Spelling correction for consistency with pod/perldebguts.pod.

The original patch did not apply cleanly; 'git apply' had problems with pod/perldebguts.pod. I extracted that section and applied the balance. I then applied the part pertaining to perldebguts, but encountered problems in 'make test_porting'. It appears that the part of perldebguts changed has to be consistent with parts of regcomp.sym and regnodes.h. This required multiple invocations of 'perl regen.pl' to get right.

Thank you very much.
