-ivreg2- (available from ssc-ideas, co-authored by Kit Baum, Steve Stillman and myself)
will do this for you.

In the following example,

ivreg2 y1 x1 x2 x3 (= z1 z2 z3)

the Sargan statistic produced by ivreg2 is an LM test of z1,z2,z3 for the OLS
regression of y1 on x1,x2,x3.  See the ivreg2 help file for more details.
