Sean,

What is the size of the cutout you need?  1/10" headers typically have square pins.  
If the switch and the jack are going to be soldered to the board I would use a round 
hole for all of the pins.  For a majority of applications I use a finished hole five 
over corner to corner, the longest distance if not square.  Unless they are alignment 
pins, I would advise against using a square hole in any case.

Cheers!
Drew
