Optimization packages for Mathematica: do they exist?

Does a Mathematica package exist that uses Quasi-Newton algorithms for
optimization?  I need a package that allows for the minimization of a
objective function that is not based on least squares, but maximum
likelihoods.

Thanks for any information,
Mike
