I am using estpost ttest to produce tables of summary statistics,
looking for significant differences between treatment and control
variables (preferably showing t-statistics and p-values). I have a
case where I need to do this with sampling weights, but the ttest
command does not take weights.

I know I can use the following sequence to find the differences, F
stats and p-values:

svyset [pw=weight]
svy : mean var, over(intervention)
test [var]0 = [var]1
lincom [var]0 - [var]1

and I can even save the resulting r() values as scalars using (e.g.)
eststo, add(difference r(estimate)). But I'm having trouble using
those scalars with esttab to generate a results table in a sensible

Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks in advance,
