An additional point is the name conflict with littleCMS about icclink. Can 
you make the installation of icclink optional untill the issue might be 
solved otherwise (like renaming)? 

would you consider taking these changes into your package and allow an 
double build system? It would help accepting your package for 
distributors on Linux.

Thanks for that great package.
