Nikkor 28-70mm 2.8 squeaks -- big deal, or not?

I've been browsing lenses on e-bay and I see several Nikkor 28-70mm 2.8 lenses where cautions to "READ" the descriptions say they squeak.  One mentioned the squeak is why they are "selling cheap".

What's with the squeak?  Is it something to be concerned about?  Inconsequential?

I would buy only lenses that are listed as Very Good to Mint anyway and wouldn't buy a squeaky lens; but I would like to learn about this squeak thing.
