Default Is openbox still available ?

Code:
#pkg_add -v openbox
Can't find openbox
I have browsed some mirrors where i cannot find openbox.

Do i need to compile openbox from ports ?

Sincerely!

Assuming you are running OpenBSD 5.0 on i386:
Code:
$ ftp ftp.openbsd.org
Connected to ftp.openbsd.org (129.128.5.191).
220 openbsd.srv.ualberta.ca FTP server ready.
Name (ftp.openbsd.org:blackduck): anonymous

Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
ftp> cd pub/OpenBSD/5.0/packages/i386
250 CWD command successful.
ftp> dir *openbox*
227 Entering Passive Mode (129,128,5,191,206,25)
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for '/bin/ls'.
-rw-r--r--  1 0  0  337614 Aug 16  2011 openbox-3.4.11.2p0.tgz
226 Transfer complete.
ftp> bye
221 Goodbye.

I suspect you need to check the value of PKG_PATH or try another mirror.

If you are running a release Openbox is there. If you are running a current snapshot it likely will be there. More often than not the message

sw2wolf, a number of your messages of late have been incomplete makes readers guess as to what may be the root cause of your problems. Guessing can lead to unnecessary confusion for everyone, & does not help find resolution.

We invite you to study the following thread which points out both obvious & not so obvious things to consider when asking for technical help:

While I suspect that English is not your first language, understanding the contents of the provided thread will help you think through what facts you know & provide the necessary information that others require. We are at a disadvantage because we are not there; we cannot look over your shoulder to read what is on your screen, & we do not know the history of your installation.

Maybe the mirror has some problem. After i change it to ftp.openbsd.org,
it works now.

thanks!

You might find this link useful. You can also browse the links to ensure the package you seek is on the server. It also is beneficial to avoid the top tier server (ftp.openbsd.org) as its bandwidth is best spent synching the lower tier servers. This is most useful for those running current but in your case with 5.0-release you can still check you server for the package in question.
