I assume that you mean a weak inequality (with a strict one there would be
guarantee of a maximum).  Then, the local maximum occurs either in the
interior (strict equality) or on the boundary (equality).  One solves that
by compairing the values in the unconstrained problem and the
equality-constrained problem.  
I have not seen statistical references this, but it seems to follow from

are there any possibilities to put restrictions on parameters in 
regressions (in my case nonlinear), for example >0 and <0.5? (I cannot find 
anything on the subject in the "manuals".)
