I did a quick search for "Fortran 77 standard" and came up with
the following, which suggests that the syntax is just "END" without
extra characters but AFAICT doesn't explicitly forbid the latter.

OK, thanks. I'd be happy to update that paragraph (is it just
sparse that needs C++?) if there is some wiki page for editing
documentation like NumPy has? In the meantime I'm trying to get
a working C++ compiler installed (seemed for a moment like I
was finally almost finished building stuff...).
