For a set of indicator variables the coefficient for the baseline
category is easily computed, it is 0. However I guess you are looking
for something more in the line of this Stata tip that is about to
appear in the next issue of the Stata Journal:

M.L. Buis (forthcoming) "Stata tip 106: With or without reference",
The Stata Journal, 12(1).

Hope this helps,
