Actually, looking at nearstat.mata, if you -do- that routine it will create the library under your current version of Mata >= 10.1, and once you have that library, nearstat will use that copy. So you only need to -do- this code once.

I agree with Nick that it is somewhat mystifying to have a sequence

version 10.1
void foobar( )
mata mlib create...
mata mlib add...


and then end up with a Mata library that is not usable under version 10.1. But as Nick suggested, the recommended inclusion of a -version- statement before invoking Mata presumably just prevents the code from ever running in version 9.x, and does not imply that the library will be compatible with version 10.1.
