nonlinear optimization routines?

I have an office mate who is searching for a Mma package which will solve
optimization problem with linear constraints and a nonlinear objective
functions (i.e. the solution space is convex). There are only 10 decision
variables but he needs solve the problem for lots of cases (so it would be
helpful if he could execute the package from within a loop).

Does anyone know if the standard packages will do this or has anyone
written a package that will solve this problem (linear constraints and
nonlinear functions)

He tried the nonlinear solver in Excel, but it doesn't return the
optimium.... so he's looking for other ideas.  RSVP to this email address
and I'll forward the responses to him.
