st: Running old Stata (8.0) on new Ubuntu

I happen to have an old license for Intercooled Stata 8 for Unix which I
tried installing on a new Ubuntu 8.04 ("Hardy") workstation.

'stata' runs fine, but 'xstata' does not:

  $ /usr/local/stata/xstata

  xstata: dynamic-link.h:57: elf_get_dynamic_info: Assertion `! "bad dynamic tag"' failed.

The installation is is statically-linked, rather than dynamic, because
there appeared to be a lot of library incompatibilities when I tried the
dynamically-linked approach (which I tried first).

Can anyone help here?  I'd prefer not to upgrade if there's a simple
solution to the problem.
