The existing g77 testsuite is 100% based on the c-torture framework;
there's not "gcc.dg" framework for the g77 testsuite.
Therefore, there's no good way to specify additional options for
the testsuite. c-torture and f-torture are really designed for
tests which we don't need to do anything special for.
Now, having said that, there's a backdoor you can use to override
much of the c-torture framework -- the ".x" files are run if they
exist instead of using the standard c-torture testing framework.
So in theory you could use them to specify additional options or to
perform some other hackery.
