1998 XLT makes squeaky noise when engaging first gear

My truck is running fine, however, I routinely notice a very noticeable squeak when I'm starting out in first gear. It happens just as the clutch is engaging. It maybe nothing, but I was wondering if there is anything in the clutch mechanism that may require lubrication. Is it just a normal sound that an older clutch makes? The truck currently has 106K and otherwise the clutch seems to be working fine.
