Hi Jan Ulrich,

maybe testing if the file is there may work for you.

Here is a sample:

    \doiffileelse{srgb.icc}{fine now}{\red\ss\bfd HUGE MISTAKE}

    \doiffileelse{srgb.icca}{fine now}{\red\ss\bfd HUGE MISTAKE}

The first profile is provided within the ConTeXt Suite, the second one
is a wrong file name.

Just in case it might help,
