If `theta1' = `theta2' than you can just replace all instances of `theta2' with `theta1'. That is the whole point of that constraint. Also, if this is a survival model, have you looked at whether it is not already implemented in -streg-? Finally, if you want to use -ml- than "Maximum Likelihood Estimation with Stata" by William Gould, Jeffrey Pitblado, and William Sribney (http://www.stata.com/bookstore/mle.html) is invaluable.
