Many thanks. It turns out that the procedure is different for discrete outcomes (see section V in the article). Does anyone have code for that? Here is the full citation for the Clogg et al. article:

Clogg, Clifford C., Eva Petkova, and Adamantios Haritou. 1995. Statistical Methods for Comparing Regression Coefficients between Models. American Journal of Sociology 100:1261-93.

I am not familiar with this method, but a quick look at the
article shows that their method uses only  quantities that
-regress- returns after you estimate a model, so you can
easily do it yourself, like the example below:

*---------- begin example ----------
sysuse auto, clear
reg price mpg
scalar b = _b[mpg]
scalar vb = _se[mpg]^2
scalar ve = e(rmse)^2

reg price mpg foreign
scalar d = scalar(b)-_b[mpg]
scalar se = sqrt(_se[mpg]^2-scalar(vb)*e(rmse)^2/scalar(ve))
di scalar(d)
di scalar(se)
*------------ end example -----------
