Thanks for the attempt, but of course I had run configure, make and make 
install when updating the CVS, and everything went fine.

Your reply however suggest me to check folder consistencies. The file  
"stata_import.so" is located in 
/usr/local/gretl/plugin/.libs/stata_import.so, while the commands import 
or open  look for it into  /usr/local/lib/gretl-gtk2/.

I've copied the file in the folder where "import" and "open" look for 
it, and now everything works. However, I do not think this is the proper 
solution. Any idea about the reason of this mismatch ?
