I believe the glpk patch for the octave port modifies  
directly to declare and call functions that still exist in the  
library but are no longer declared (i.e. exposed) in the gplk header  
file.  It does not setup or use the GLPK_PRE_4_15 macro.

I'm not sure whether this results in a .cc file that is compatible  
with version 4.14, but since the current glpk port is revision 4.15  
does anyone need 4.14 compatibility?
