IIRC someone posted a sample C application that uses OpenGL shaders and 
a color management library (lcms?) to generate the shader and to convert 
a file from srgb to some other profile. Yay, I found it :) here is the 
said email:

It is basically just a trilinear texture lookup. 3D textures are 
supported starting with OpenGL 1.3, so any decent driver will support that.
