-xtivreg2- has an undocumented option -sw- that will cause it to report
Stock-Watson heteroskedasticity-robust SEs for the fixed effects
estimator as described in their 2008 paper.  It's undocumented because I
haven't (yet) found a published or other set of results that would let
me confirm the coding with a replication.  I _think_ it's right ... but
caveat emptor.
