I don't think the issue is related to Unity. In Ubuntu 11.04 the
libtiff libraries are located in /lib32/. As such, the command:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libtiff.so.4 /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3

creates a symbolic link to nothing. I tried linking to the library in
/lib32/ directly but, as expected, this causes problems in 64 bit
Ubuntu. You need to compile code native to to the environment (in this
case, 64 bit). I got dynamically linked Stata up and running by
downloading and extracting the tiff-3.7.4.tar.gz archive from one of
the mirrors listed at
http://www.filewatcher.com/m/tiff-3.7.4.tar.gz.1282627.0.0.html, and
doing the following in bash:

#############################################
# Create a directory for Stata 11 and install Stata here
sudo mkdir /usr/local/stata11
cd /usr/local/stata11
sudo /path-to-installation-disk/install

# Enter the license information
sudo ./stinit

# Fix some libraries
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libgtksourceview-2.0.so.0 /usr/lib/libgtksourceview-1.0.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libgtk2.0-0 /usr/lib/libgtk-1.2.0
sudo apt-get install libgtksourceview1.0-0

# set up build environment
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig"
export PATH="/usr/local/bin:$PATH"

#  compile the tiff library
cd /directory-where-you-extracted-the-source
env CC=gcc CFLAGS=-m64 ./configure
make
sudo make install
#############################################

After this xstata launched and ran with no errors.

Hope this helps.
Cheers,
David
