GLPK uses integer variables for problem dimensions, but Octave is storing octave_idx_type values in those variables. This can cause trouble if Octave is compiled with 64-bit indexing and someone passes large arrays to glpk. The changes required should be similar to what was done in this changeset


for similar problems with Qhull.

It would probably be best to generalize the "octave_qhull_dims_ok" function and avoid duplicating it in multiple files.
