-gammafit- and -pgamma- are user-written 
commands for two-parameter gamma distributions
from SSC. 

You don't say what p1 is here, perhaps
a typo for x1. 

However, don't use the -fraction- option. The 
defaulty -density- option for -histogram- 
gives the natural scale for comparing with 
a superimposed density function.
