Are you sure you have the latest version of -khb- installed? I cannot
replicate the error using Stata 12 and -khb- (installed from SSC)

. which khb
c:\ado\plus\k\khb.ado
*! version 2.7 November 16, 2011 @ 16:41:49 UK
*! Decomposing total effects using the KHB method
*! Support: kohler@wzb.eu

It seems the problem is not in the ado-file but in lkhb.mata and its
compiled version. So make sure you have the correct Mata files
installed, too. There is no "*! version" comment in the file, so type

findfile lkhb.mata
doedit "`r(fn)'"

The file should read

// Calculate correlation metric from coefficient vectors
// version 0.3 Implements new standard error
// version 0.4 Remove bug in concomitant function
// version 0.5 Set SE to missing for option SE

[...]	
	// The KHB-Method
	// -------------
	
	void khb(
		string rowvector SURxnames,
		string rowvector FULLznames,
		string rowvector FULLxnames,
		string scalar Method
		)

The error message you showed us, suggests that there is one line
missing in the definitions.

Best
Daniel
