[vbox-dev] possibly misleading reference to "VBox.sh" in scripts

first time going through VBox [6.0.2] in real detail so currently
proofreading and making notes. after installing on my fedora 29
system, i noticed that there were a small number of references to
"VBox.sh" in some of the installed scripts under /usr/lib/virtualbox:
$ grep -rw VBox.sh *
postinst-common.sh:# The below is GNU-specific. See VBox.sh for the longer Solaris/OS X version.
prerm-common.sh:# The below is GNU-specific. See VBox.sh for the longer Solaris/OS X version.
vboxdrv.sh:# The below is GNU-specific. See VBox.sh for the longer Solaris/OS X version.
however, i saw no such script VBox.sh installed anywhere on my
system, so i svn checked out the source and found the spec file, where
that script is renamed to simply "VBox":
VirtualBox.spec:mv VBox.sh $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/bin/VBox
everything works fine, of course, but the comment references in those
earlier three scripts to "VBox.sh" have the potential to throw the
reader who goes looking for VBox.sh and, obviously, won't find it.
