    I was just cleaning out my Inbox, and i noticed this message, but no
answer to it.  If you are still interested,
see "Practical Optimization Methods. With Mathematica Applications", by
Ashgar Bhatti.  There may be a solution in that book, which is a pretty
comprehensive textbook.
 Also, Craig Loehr, LoehrAssociates(?) has a package of Global Optimization
routines, which I use for a data fitting problem I have.  It has a couple of
"global nonlinear optimization with constraints" routines that might work
for you.  You can get further information about this from the Wolfram Site's
add-ons page.
