I don't know -svar-, but often you can impose such a constraint 
by creating a new variable:

d1*x - d1*y + d2*z = e
d1*(x-y) + d2*z = e

So if you create a new variable that is x -y and add that
new variable instead of x and y. The coefficient of that new 
variable is the d1 you are looking for.

Hope this helps,
