According to the FB^3 documentation, during auto conversion of FBII projects:

  12.  All COMPILE lines are remarked out. (Use the FB^3 preferences
       window to set compile options.)

At least in my hands, the COMPILE statements are actually _not_ commented
out automatically.

We are warned that having COMPILE statements in source-code files is likely
to cause strange behaviour. From my experience so far, the strange
behaviour can include completely wrong parameter values being passed to
LOCAL FNs, resulting in frequent crashes and other weirdness.

Thus as an early step in conversion, search for all COMPILE statements and
comment them out manually.
