I am not aware of a command, but it should not be hard changing the
existing -anycount-. Here's an ad hoc step-by-step

1. locate -anycount- and open it in the do-file editor

. findfile _ganycount.ado
. doedit "`r(fn)'"

2. change the file (don't save the changes yet)

2.1 change line 2 form

"program define _ganycount"
"program define _ganycount2"

2.2 change line 7 from

"[...] , Values(numlist int) /*"
"[...] ,Values(numlist) /*"

2.3 change line 26 from

"*/ if ``i'' == `nj' & `touse'"
*/ if ``i'' == float(`nj') & `touse'

3. save the file as _ganycount2.ado to your "personal" folder
(to locate type: -di c(sysdir_personal)-) or alternatively to your
"plus/_/" folder (locate: -di c(sysdir_personal)-)

4. -discard- Stata

5. use your -anycount2- function
. egen somevar = anycount2(varlist), values(1.2 0.8 1.5)
