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).
