[OS X TeX] problems with \pdfliteral

No matter how I do it:

\newcommand{\whatcolor}[1]{\colortoks={#1 }}
\pdfliteral{\the colortoks k}


\newcommand{\whatcolor}[1]{\def\colorit{#1 }}
\expandafter\pdfliteral\expandafter{\colorit k}

I end up with an error (and a blank page where \pdfliteral is used)  
in Acrobat:

"There were too many arguments."

but no error at all in TeXShop or Preview.

Could somebody enlighten me about what is happening, and a workaround?

I'm glad I decided to try this in Acrobat, just as a test...

Thanks for any help.
