[xep-support] Re: PDF/X-3 compliance error

OK, I think I progressed a bit... I actually believe I have to use the
xep-pdf-icc-profile processing instruction.
I have managed to get a few .icc files both from adobe.com and from
color.org - related sites, but none will work, since I keep getting an error
such as:

[error] Invalid URL or non-existent file:
setting ignored; PDF/X status revreted to 'none'.

by the way, this file actually exists :) :

qf@qfbox:~/Desktop/qf/dev/pruebas_v01$ ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 qf qf 1526728 Mar 17 15:16

Actually, this message looks more like an error in the URI specification,
but I have tried all sorts of forms, without success. My .fo file's head is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<?xep-pdf-crop-offset 10mm?><?xep-pdf-crop-mark-width 0.2mm?><?xep-pdf-bleed
-width 0.2mm?><?xep-pdf-pdf-x pdf-x-3?><?xep-pdf-icc-profile
url(color/icc/ISOcoated.icc)?><fo:root xm
lns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format" xmlns:rx="

I've also tried all sorts of variants: absolute url, relative url, with
single quote, with double quotes...
<?xep-pdf-icc-profile url('color/icc/ISOcoated.icc')?>
<?xep-pdf-icc-profile url("color/icc/ISOcoated.icc")?>
<?xep-pdf-icc-profile url('./color/icc/ISOcoated.icc')?>
<?xep-pdf-icc-profile url('
<?xep-pdf-icc-profile url('

None of those would work. I actually have upgradede my XEP version to the
last one available, and got the same results. After that, I've been trying
with several icc files, same result. I'm pretty stuck, right now.
