How does dcraw treat a raw file?  That would give us a good hint.

For what it's worth, dcraw offers [several] -o (output) options

Dave Coffin's manual explains the file options a bit better (sorta) than his actual command line list:

-o [0-5] Select the output colorspace when the-p option is not used:

0  Raw color (unique to each camera)
1   sRGB D65 (default)
2   Adobe RGB (1998) D65
3   Wide Gamut RGB D65
4   Kodak ProPhoto RGB D65
5   XYZ

-p camera.icm [ -o output.icm ] Use ICC profiles to define the camera's raw color space and the desired output color space (sRGB by default).

-p embed Use the ICC profile embedded in the raw photo.

Here's a link to the manual page:
