Spell Checking in Empathy

The spell checker in Empathy is giving me British (or other
Commonwealth) spelling, not good old American
If-It's-Good-Enough-For-Noah-Webster spelling. When I pull up the
spelling tab in the preferences dialog, all I see is "English". Doh.
How do I tell it I want American English? Short of removing all my non
"en-us" English spelling packages.

This on Ubuntu 11.04, empathy 2.34.0-0ubuntu3.2.
