```"Note that the covariance of the coefficients between equations is not estimated
under
this option and that cross-equation tests should not be performed after
estimation with
ols.  For cross-equation testing, use sureg or 3sls (the default)."

Another possible way is pool the data, estimate a single fully interacted model
and test whether or not the coefficient of the interaction term is equal to
zero. However, this does impose the assumption of homoskedasticity across the
model.

Hope this helps,
Scott
