Then there is no way to show the label for every 5th set of bars other than
something like

over(gene,  relabel(1 "." 2 "." 3"." 4"." 6"." 7"." 8"." 9"." 11"."...(all
the way to 49)) ) ?

Even with this, I can't get it to show nothing for non-multiples of 5 For
example if I replace "." with "" or " ", I still get the original x-variable
value.

You are missing the manual or on-line help. 

The "other" axis on a bar chart is considered 
a categorical axis, not an x axis. Its options 
are different. 

Example: 

. graph bar (mean) mpg , 
over(foreign, relabel(1 "D" 2 "F")) over(rep78)
