Hello Andrew

glpk.i is all that is needed to control swig.
My expectation is that many users who want to use GLPK in Java
(or other languages) do not know which parameters to pass to Swig
and how to build a dll (or .so-library) to make use of GLPK. Hence
I would appreciate makefiles to be provided.

It would make sense to separate a glpk library on one side and 
(possibly multiple) language dependent wrapper libraries.

(I remember the discussion about reducing dependencies for odbc 
in the Debian distribution.)
