Hello Robbie,

said "Classpath Exception" reads:

    As a special exception, the copyright holders of this library give you
    permission to link this library with independent modules to produce an
    executable, regardless of the license terms of these independent modules,
    and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under terms of your
    choice, provided that you also meet, for each linked independent module,
    the terms and conditions of the license of that module.  An independent
    module is a module which is not derived from or based on this library.  If
    you modify this library, you may extend this exception to your version of
    the library, but you are not obligated to do so.  If you do not wish to do
    so, delete this exception statement from your version.

This could be applied to an application linking GLPK and a third party library, 
which is not GPL v3 compatible.

There are a lot of free software libraries published with a license which is 
not GPL v3 compatible. See
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#GPLIncompatibleLicenses

But as Andrew is the copyright holder of GLPK, it is up to him to choose a 
license.

Best regards

Xypron
