I just installed openFoam on FreeBSD 6.1
The process was lengthy, but sucessful. Paraview works fine and the foam installationtest was successful.
However, when trying to run the first tutorial, I get the following error running paraFoam:

# Error or warning: ERROR: In /work/a/ports/science/paraview/work/paraview-2.4.2/Utilities/VTKClientServer/vtk ClientServerInterpreter.cxx, line 866
vtkClientServerInterpreter (0x8074d80): Cannot find module "". The following paths were searched:

ErrorMessage end

ErrorMessage end

vtkPVApplication (0x804ff00):
Returned Error on line 11:
invalid command name ""
ErrorMessage end

The root cause seems to be a missing shared library. The library is indeed nowhere to be found.
Does anyone have a hint where to look for the library or how to compile the missing library?

The library is in:
and should appear after you compile the source of OpenFOAM.
