There may be an official Stata solution, but what 
I would recommend is that you try -catplot- from SSC. 
-catplot- appeared early in the life of Stata 8 given 
the discovery that -graph bar- is not that good at 

. catplot bar rep78 foreign,  blabel(bar, position(outside))   

Is that what you want?
