Try getting out of r.mapcalc and doing this as a shell script.
The syntax will vary.
This syntax works in BASH.
I am writing this off the top of my head, so you may need to play 
with it a bit.

=========== start script ====================

for map in $LOCATION/$MAPSET/a12*970124 ; do
map2=`echo ${map} | sed "s/$LOCATION\/$MAPSET/,/"`
bigmap=`echo ${bigmap}${map2}`

map3=`echo ${bigmap} | sed "s/,,/ /" `
r.mapcalc max970124=max(${map3})

=========== end script =====================
This script assembles a comma-separated list of maps in ${bigmap}, 
trims the leading pair of commas from the list, and then runs 
r.mapcalc with them.

Good Luck!
Angus Carr.
