I should probably have mentioned the form of that function I wish to
find the minimum of:

g[a_, b_, c_, d_] := (
    A = {Table[f1[n, a, c, d], {n, 1, 60}], Table[f2[n, b, c, d], {n,
1, 60}],
           Table[f3[n, c, d], {n, 1, 60}], Table[f4[n, c, d], {n, 1,
           Table[1, {n, 1, 60}]};
    invA = PseudoInverse[A];
    X = A.invA;
    residue = B - X.A;

This function is certainly a bit slow but it does work. I could check
with ContourPlot the existence of a minimum along a and b (c and d
being fixed).

I tried FindMinimum just on g[a,b0,c0,d0] with b, c and d fixed and
giving a very good starting point and limits for a but it also failed.
