Jerry Pursell wrote requesting information on routines which can solve
constrained optimization problems with non-linear objective functions.  There
IS something on MathSource which might be helpful.  The supplement to Hal
Varian's book Economic and Financial Modeling with Mathematica, is number
0205-399 and is under the Periodicals..Books..Supplements area in the Gopher.  

The supplement contains two packages which might be helpful - SYMBOPT.M and
KUHNTUCK.M, the last being set up for inequality constraints.  You may need to
buy or borrow the book to figure out how to use these (available from Springer
Verlag).
