I'll second Ben's comments. Here is a very useful tutorial on how to use
Argyll and the ColorMunki by someone who is a software developer and has
created a good piece of software for profiling cameras
This should help get you started along with the Argyll documentation.

I'm trying to find out how good a rgb camera performs as an colorimeter
Somebody with very solid color science chops could rig up a way to do it
anywhere from kinda okay (using a perfectly controlled photo reproduction
environment) to superlatively (by building a large-aperature spectroscope
and just using the camera as the device to record its output).
But, anybody doing so...is going to be using a spectrometer to calibrate the
system...and the spectrometers of choice are going to be more than enough
for printer profiling. In other words, it'd be an educational exercise, an
engineering challenge, a lark...but not a way to make printer profiles.
May I suggest? If the goal is good printer profiles, get your hands on a
ColorMunki and don't look back.
