Well, to answer my own question, I found one with some help from the
Debian people. Xterm will accpet Alt/Meta modifiers, with the
following line in your .Xresources file:

xterm*metaSendsEscape: true

This works for me with Debian testing, YMMV. There's also a package
called XtermExtras, with an .el file, .inputrc and .Xresources
modifications available at the EmacsWiki.
