I don't run Windowmaker, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do it
directly from Blackbox either, so what I've done is to make a shell
script like so:

  (cd /usr/local/whatever/; program)

(Assuming that by 'working path' you mean 'working directory'; if what
you really want is to change the PATH environment variable, you could do
that from the shell script as well I suppose.)
