"could not find" does not indicate how you looked, but 
on the face of it, even in Stata 9.2 there is no 
command combining -svy- and -xt-. The law of -svy- non-expertise
is that you're wrong even when you think you are right, 
so someone may correct me on that. 

You should certainly -update- from Stata 8.0 to 8.2, 
as you are missing many small extras and bug fixes. 
Upgrading to 9 is also naturally recommended, as -svy- stuff
is subject to substantial version-on-version improvement. 
Stuff you want that is added in future will be incompatible
with 8.
