While workable alternative solutions have been suggested,
the inability to do this in -graph bar- with the -blabel()- 
option seems to be an oversight. I would think that adding
a -blabel(varname())- sub-option might be something StataCorp
should consider.  Just my two cents worth (discounted at
whatever the going rate is).
