How shall we do it?

You already DID it.
The actual question must be: how can we avoid it?

And then it would be VERY helpful to see the code that results in the 
posted problem. Or how the heck should anyone find out what the problem 
may be?

But usually this error results from dynamic borders or ranges that 
should or must be static when synthesizing the design...

BTW: by reading the word "scrambler" i become kind of suspicious:

okay, without any code it is definitely a bit difficult to solve the 

But the compiler has a problem with your definition in your entity.

You declared some "constant" value in your generic section in your 
entity and the compiler wants a constant in the architecture I think.

Maybe it could fix your problem.
