Thanks Steve.  
I had been hoping to avoid doing all the algebra (or at 
least get some pre-calculated values to check my algebra 

It6 seems I'm out of luck.

  -predict- gives values at the observations after every regression  
command. To get it for arbitrary values of the inputs, you have to do  
it yourself.   S(t| t_0) = S(t)/S(t_0), and the formulas for S(.) are  
on page 358 of the Stata Manual (V 11).  You can get the linear  
predictor for any values of the X's with  -margins-  or -adjust- 
( Stata<11).  Add the appropriate auxiliary parameters (returned  
results e(theta), e(aux_p), e(gamma), e(sigma), e(kappa)); your t and  
t_0; then plug  everything into the formulas.
