Currently, any statement line starts with a keyword with TF_COMMAND
flag.  So, the following three lines are dead code.

        alloc_string(yytext, yyleng);
        zconflval.string = text;
        return T_WORD;

If a T_WORD token is returned in this context, it will cause syntax
error in the parser anyway.

The next commit will support the assignment statement where a line
starts with an arbitrary identifier.  So, I want the lexer to switch
to the PARAM state only when it sees a command keyword.
