Yes I believe that should work. You could also add a new [angletypes] 
directive into your .top file after the forcefield files to define this 
angle type. That might avoid any problems with ffoplsaa.itp needing to 
include the version of ffoplsaabon.itp local to your .top file rather 
than local to itself (if that's what's happening).
