Did you recompile the package under R-devel?  Some of the names of
internal routines that are not part of the API have changed between
R-1.1.1 and R-Devel.

I have no difficulty compiling and testing stataread under R-devel on
a Debian 2.2 Linux system.

 $ /usr/local/bin/R CMD check stataread
 * checking for working latex ... OK
 * using log directory /tmp/stataread.Rcheck

Furthermore, there is no symbol errorcall in the shared library
