  I am trying to upgrade from openbox-3.4 from Debian-6.0 packages to

  libobrender.so.27.  That file exists in /usr/local/lib.  Dpkg shows
  the libobrender21 package is installed ok.  How can I make
  openbox-3.5 happy?

Maybe you need to run ldconfig, possibly adding /usr/local/lib to the
list. This should be automatic but I don't know how Debian handles this.

What does "ldd `which openbox`" say?
