Since negative values could balance positives, you might need to use:
which(colSums(abs(t-v)) == 0)
> t=matrix(1:12,3,4)
> v=c(1,2,3)
> which(colSums(t-v) == 0)
[1] 1
> t
[,1] [,2] [,3] [,4]
[1,] 1 4 7 10
[2,] 2 5 8 11
[3,] 3 6 9 12
> t[1,2] <- -5
> which(colSums(t-v) == 0)
[1] 1 2
> which(colSums(abs(t-v)) == 0)
[1] 1
