Alt_L and Alt_R are not the same

In GNU Emacs 20.7.2 (i386-debian-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
 of Tue Jun 20 2000 on raven
configured using `configure  i386-debian-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr 
--sharedstatedir=/var/lib --libexecdir=/usr/lib --localstatedir=/var/lib 
--infodir=/usr/share/info --with-pop=yes --with-x=yes --with-x-toolkit=yes'

I just remapped two of my keys in .Xmodmap as follows:

keycode 115 = Alt_L
keycode 116 = Alt_R

When I run xmodmap, these changes are reflected:

~$ xmodmap -pk
    115         0xffe9 (Alt_L)  
    116         0xffea (Alt_R)  

Emacs, however, seems to recognize only Alt_L as "A-" modifier.
When I use C-h k and then Alt_L + q I get:

  A-q is undefined

When I use C-h k and then Alt_R + q I get:

  q runs the command self-insert-command

I think Emacs should treat both Alt_L and Alt_R as "A-" and therefore
I expected Emacs to respond as before:

  A-q is undefined
