So, you cannot use -nearstat- unless an older version is provided to
you or you upgrade your Stata (not STATA) to 12.

The mata source files are included with nearstat. Can't you delete the mlib files and recreate them? It seems like this problem has come up before. The author intended the program to work under an earlier version of stata, but then created the compiled mata programs in a later version, and earlier versions of Stata then had problems. I vaguely remember one of Maarten's programs having an issue like this and he fixed it.
