Thanks Kit.  Getting back to the original question, Stephen had asked

If I use the "test" command after estimation, the results reported by Stata is in F-distribution, but I want the results to be reported in chi-square distribution with its associated p-value.
If it is simply a matter of him preferring to report chi-squares rather than F values, then rather than go through the tedium of -lrtest-, could he just take the F value reported by test, and compute

chi-squared = (numerator degrees of freedom) * F

That seems to be the implication of this FAQ from Stata on chi-square versus F:
