In a particular case, may be.

Oh, sorry for my poor English. I meant that it would be nice to have
such api routine, but currently glpk doesn't have it.

I don't think you need to patch the glpk code. You could write a simple
routine, which starting from the final basis reported by glp_simplex
minimizes the sum of primal infeasibilities (for example, using a
standard technique by including slack/surplus/artificial variables in
every constraint and then minimizing the sum of such variables).
