Yep, you're being pedantic. From the webpage:
"Note colons following keywords are optional in setup.hint file while they
are mandatory in setup.ini."

Interject: IMO, binmode.o, textmode.o, and automode.o are all quick-n-dirty
shortcuts. The *real* solution is to do what you've done with squid:
explicitly fix each and every open() and fopen() call, according to
a_priori knowledge about the contents of each file (if possible).
e.g. .foorc is gonna be a text file.
However, this is hard, and takes a while to sort out all of the issues.
E.g. automode = quick-n-dirty.
But, as long as the port *works* properly, the decision on how to address
binmode/textmode issues is up to the maintainer. E.g not me.

Correct. NOT a showstopper.
