The comments at the top of the NNLS subroutine say:
C GIVEN AN M BY N MATRIX, A, AND AN M-VECTOR, B, COMPUTE AN
C N-VECTOR, X, THAT SOLVES THE LEAST SQUARES PROBLEM
C
C A * X = B SUBJECT TO X .GE. 0
so this is a very limited type op optimization. We would like to have
a general NLP solver that is also free software.
