More Constrained Min, nonlinear

Dear MathGroup,
<wolfrum@cs.unibonn.de> asked the question below, and several fine answers have been posted.
I have a related question.... What if the constraint:
abs(x+y) = 1
is replaced by a new constaint:
abs(x+y) <= 1
How can one solve a problem like this in Mma?? Thank you for your help
Dave
