Never ever use anything but a profile generated for your monitor, 
otherwise all bets are off for color previews.

I just refreshed the section on creating profiles with lprof for 
Linux. Here: 
the rest of the color management docs are getting redone right now  
for 1.3.x

On Windows, if you have Adobe Gamma, you can use that to create a 
decent monitor profile visually. It will not be as accurate as 
hardware created profile. 

The older littlecms profilers and manual for windows are available 

I expect we will see a new lprof available for Windows by the next 

On peut parle en francais sur IRC aussi. :)

Hope that helps,
