Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If it is in /usr/local/lib maybe he does not see it. You can verify if libopenobex.so.1 is included in the library cache using ldconfig -p as root. Anyway, why don't use yum to install the package, so that it can take care of the dependencies automagically?
Take a look at man ldconfig. Anyway, how did you installed libopenobex.so.1? If you have compiled it from source, maybe it's better to install a pre-compiled version from a binary package to assure compatibility.
the reason i compiled it from source was that another package which uses same libopenobex.so.1 file was not available in rpm form.hence i had install these packages from source.
You can try to install either openobex for RHEL4 or openobex for CentOS 5.3. Use the --test option of rpm to test the installation without actually installing anything passing both the openobex and the libobexftp packages as arguments.
The problem is that rpm doesn't check for dependencies in
the file-system or any PATH, but in its RPM database. I
think that however libobex made it into /usr/local - it
wasn't via rpm (and hence rpm doesn't know about it).
