The code 

if wordcount("`rhs'")<=wordcount("`varlist'") {
	local graphvars "`rhs'"       
        }

can be translated

if `: word count `rhs'' <= `: word count `varlist'' { 
	local graphvars "`rhs'"  
} 

This should work in Stata 7 too. It may not be 
documented for 7. Make sure you use the correct single
quotes. 

Of course, you should upgrade to Stata 8 too....
