Add another variable for each row in the binary matrix:
z[row]>=m[row, col]
minimize its sum.
The z's need not be binary.

It can be done with a single z,
but I expect user-defined cuts would be necessary.
Note that GLPK assumes cuts are not mathematically necessary.
GLPK might return a solution you deem infeasible.
In that case, you would neeed to add a cut and rerun.
Keeping the previously discovered cuts would not be automatic.

This can be done, sort of.
Again you would need an auxillary variable for each matrix row.
could be inserted with the original set.

Again it coulod be done with a single z
and the same complications are before.
