15.3.18 Old-style PARAMETER Statements

g77 doesn't accept `PARAMETER I=1'. Supporting this obsolete form of the PARAMETER statement would not be particularly hard, as most of the parsing code is already in place and working.

Until time/money is spent implementing it, you might as well fix your code to use the standard form, `PARAMETER (I=1)' (possibly needing `INTEGER I' preceding the PARAMETER statement as well, otherwise, in the obsolete form of PARAMETER, the type of the variable is set from the type of the constant being assigned to it).
