you could also use xicclu -fif -kx instead of iteratively searching for the

I'll try that, thank you.

I guess it will work well as long as your paper and black chromaticities
are close to the aim values -- otherwise there can be significant abouts
of C, M or Y in the xicclu -fif result (You can avoid at least the paper
tint issues by using the relative colorimetric intent when necessary).

The xicclu -fif -kx result can be useful anyway: It helps to narrow down
the interval for the iterative search: when xicclu -fif returns c, m, y
and k, one can assume that the sought-after K value is in the interval
[k ... k + max(c,m,y)].

Another approach would be to invert a K -> L table extracted from your
measurements or calculated with icclu.
