"-:s" has been there since the original "" was created in 2003.

I installed gambc (4.8.8-3.1) on Ubuntu and it starts successfully both
with and without -:s.  However, with -:s, "./ gsi" accepts:
  (define :: 5)
but not without -:s.
According to R5RS, :: is a valid identifier.

Which version of Gambit are you running?  Perhaps there has been a
recent change in its behavior. seems to be down
