I just corrected myself a few minutes ago ... and after finding out that
"pdfcolmk" is indeed a package to be used in conjunction with "color" 
and with the executable "pdfelatex"... all worked fine.

    >(is this issue really not in the pdftex faq? -- if not, i'll cook up

PDFTeX FAQ ??? I did not know such a thing existed! I tried to look for
it last night and all I could find on Google was "PdfTeX entries in the 
UK-TEX-FAQ"  and that did not contain anything about this problem.

The main PDFTeX page at TUG also does not mention any FAQ ... can you 
point me to it ?
