Where are system-wide blackbox configs?

I'm setting up a system for multiple users (roommates) and I want the default window manager to be blackbox. Where are the global files I need to edit to make blackbox run as the default window manager?

I can copy the .xsession file into everybody's dir, but shouldn't there be some global file somewhere?

Please drop any helpful hints for running blackbox!

you can try /usr/share/blackbox

edit: whups! nevermind. i misread your post.

you can try looking in /etc/X11/xinit - i don't know though exactly though, but this point seems logical.
