Question `value'-free boundary conditions in paraFoam

yohey is on a distinguished road
I'm using version 1.6 on Debian (lenny), and in trouble with paraFoam.

I would like to make a new boundary condition
which doesn't need `value' entry such as `surfaceNormalFixedValue'.

So, I copied `surfaceNormalFixedValue' as following.

$ mkdir -p $WM_PROJECT_USER_DIR/src/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived/copyOfSurfaceNormalFixedValue
$ cp $WM_PROJECT_DIR/src/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived/surfaceNormalFixedValue/surfaceNormalFixedValueFvPatchVectorField.C $WM_PROJECT_USER_DIR/src/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived/copyOfSurfaceNormalFixedValue/copyOfSurfaceNormalFixedValueFvPatchVectorField.C
$ cp $WM_PROJECT_DIR/src/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived/surfaceNormalFixedValue/surfaceNormalFixedValueFvPatchVectorField.H $WM_PROJECT_USER_DIR/src/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived/copyOfSurfaceNormalFixedValue/copyOfSurfaceNormalFixedValueFvPatchVectorField.H
$ sed -i -e 's/surfaceNormalFixedValue/copyOfSurfaceNormalFixedValue/g' $WM_PROJECT_USER_DIR/src/finiteVolume/fields/fvPatchFields/derived/copyOfSurfaceNormalFixedValue/copyOfSurfaceNormalFixedValueFvPatchVectorField.*

And, I compiled this new boundary condition into `'.

Then, I tried to use this boundary condition as

libs ("" "");

in reference to

It works correctly with OpenFOAM-1.6 solvers.
Although, ParaView still fails to load `'.

--> FOAM Warning :
From function dlLibraryTable::open(const fileName& functionLibName)
in file db/dlLibraryTable/dlLibraryTable.C at line 79
could not load /home/yohey/OpenFOAM/yohey-1.6/lib/linux64GccDPOpt/ undefined symbol: _ZN4Foam12fvPatchFieldINS_6VectorIdEEE31patchMappe rConstructorTablePtr_E

Does anyone have any idea on this?
