I do not principally search of ways around the GPL. I only want to
clarify whether I am obligated in this special case to do so. At the
moment I would like to leave my program documentation and the download
archive as it is and avoid the aditional work to read and implement all
legal formalities associated with GLPK.

As far as I remember in the GPL text is stated that it is not a
question of money but of the freedom of users to get the source code.
First I would like to test whether there are at all users who are
interested in the program or the source code. I don't wont provide all
the overhead and then see that nobody is interested in. In some sense I
insist on the freedom of the author to decide further proceeding.
