Brett, all I do is do "make uninstall" for the old version, configure
and make install the new version, and use the "restart" switch in the
menu as long as the build goes OK.
At least, that's what I did before I switched to Gentoo, but the
principle's the same: you don't have to drop out of X to upgrade
Openbox. Hope this helps.
