Installing obconf from source for the new Openbox release candidate


I have successfully installed the new Openbox release candidate from source.

I was apparently unsuccessful in installing obconf.

Code:
whereis obconf
obconf: /usr/local/bin/obconf
It installed fine, but when I type: obconf in a terminal, I get:

Code:
obconf: error while loading shared libraries: libobrender.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
What happened?

Sily question, but is libobrender installed? If it is installed, is it in a non-standard location perhaps? Is the path where librender is installed in /etc/ld.so.conf, or wherever your distro keeps lib path info? It seems to me if it was not installed, ./configure would b0rk when you tried to compile obconf.
