Possibly, Jeroen Weesie's -linest- maybe of use:

TITLE
      linest.  Two-stage linear-constrained estimation.

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      linest imposed linear constraints on the last estimation
      results. This two-stage estimator is asymptotically equivalent
      to the "true" one-stage constrained estimator.
Yes! That looks very promising. The help even says it is written for dummies like me, i.e. "for user-written command for which the trouble to add code to deal with constraints may be excessive, we supply a solution." It sounds like it may not be quite as good as a one-stage estimation procedure, but until I learn how to write my own this may be good enough. Thanks much!
