Would it be econometrically equivalent to create dummy variables for (n-1) of your sub-samples (equivalently, I think, your groups), interact them with x1 & x2, and test the joint significance of the set of interactions with each x? This approach could be made more compact with the -xi- command. (You'll likely want dummies on the intercept for the same (n-1) sub-samples as well.) HTH.
