You are using various user-written programs here, but do _not_ say where they come from, contrary to a long-standing and often repeated request on this list.

What makes you think that they are consistent with -svy-?

Yes, and to further elaborate, fitstat provides all these statistics involving log likelihoods, e.g. LR Chi Square values, BIC, AIC. ML assumptions of independent observations are violated with svy data, so most, if not all, of what fitstat computes is not legitimate or even possible with svy data.
