-mvreg- is part of official Stata. 

The Stata manuals carry a suggestion for citation:
see verso title page of each manual. 

The same question about user-written software 
would. I suggest, be answered this way: 

1. Use a reference to the Stata Journal, Stata 
Technical Bulletin, Journal of Statistical Software, 
etc., for programs published via any journal; 

2. Use a URL for public domain programs accessible 
via the internet (e.g. SSC) together with an access date; 

3. Acknowledge a private source otherwise. 

Naturally journals have their own house styles 
affecting details. 

I'll add thanks on behalf of all those 
Stata programmers of whatever size, shape or 
status who are grateful when their work is
appreciated.
