The help file for -catplot- (from SSC) mentions that it accepts other graph options, so you could use the legend() option to specify what you want, ex:

catplot q2 , over(newold) stack asyvars perc(newold) caption("Q2") ///
name(g2, replace)  legend(on order(1 "Agree" 2 "Neutral"  3 "Disagree" ) cols(1) )
