Hmmm. Sounds like we need to investigate a little. The file *is*
present in tetex 1.0.7:

[pd at butterfly R]$ rpm -qf /usr/share/texmf/pdftex/plain/misc/pdfcolor.tex

The file itself has a bunch of color definition, as in

\def\cmykGreenYellow{0.15 0 0.69 0}
\def\cmykYellow{0 0 1 0}

and the following stuff at the end:

\def\pdfsetcolor#1{\pdfliteral{#1 k}}



    \vbox to 0pt{\vskip-22.5pt
        \line{\vbox to8.5pt{}%

You might want to investigate whether that code got migrated to other
parts of pdftex...
