It _is_, but he properly calls it: He cites "head -6 $HOME/.xmodmaprc"
and "/usr/local/bin/xmodmap $HOME/.xmodmaprc", so this isn't a
problem. Otherwise, the xmodmap program would report an error.
This is my ~/.xinitrc entry for xmodmap, for comparison:
[ -f ~/.xmodmaprc ] && xmodmap ~/.xmodmaprc
You can always verify the desired xmodmap effect by calling
it within an xterm.
