Hello Till and all,
What you are describing is correct. What I want is, that the target 
profile which is used in GhostScript or Poppler for rendering is 
embedded after rendering into the rasterfile.

If e.g. a sRGB print spool PDF file is converted through GhostScript or 
Poppler to "MyPrinter.icc" This profile should be embedded into the 

If rastertogutenprint renders the rasterfile, it uses "MyPrinter.icc e 
to extract the gutenprint driver setup from the gutenprint dictType entry.
