what is the license status of the generated code? Can it be published
under GPL or does it contain nonfree code or link to some nonfree library?
Dynamically binding non-free code to GPL code is not allowable under the
GPL license. It would only be possible if the copyright holder chose to
change the GLPK license. E.g. by adding the classpath extension
(http://www.gnu.org/software/classpath/license.html) or by changing the
license to LGPL.
