The -egenmore- package -- if that is meant here -- 
does not purport to offer any support for -svy-. 
I am not clear why you thought it did. 

There is a fundamental reason for this. -egenmore-
is just a bunch of stuff for -egen-, and -egen- 
does not support weights directly. You could subvert
that by specifying weights through an option, but 
it would be awkward at best.
