I think the right approach to do this is to tell xterm (or whatever
you use) to generate ^? (ascii 127) when you hit the backspace key and
to generate ESC [ 3 ~ (four characters) when you hit the delete key.

And then:

  (unless window-system
    (define-key function-key-map (kbd "ESC [ 3 ~") (kbd "<delete>"))
    ;; some cursor keys
    (define-key function-key-map (kbd "ESC [ 6 z") (kbd "<next>"))
    (define-key function-key-map (kbd "ESC [ 5 z") (kbd "<prior>"))
    (define-key function-key-map (kbd "ESC [ H") (kbd "<home>"))
    (define-key function-key-map (kbd "ESC O H") (kbd "<home>"))
    (define-key function-key-map (kbd "ESC [ 1 ~") (kbd "<home>"))
    (define-key function-key-map (kbd "ESC [ F") (kbd "<end>"))
    (define-key function-key-map (kbd "ESC O F") (kbd "<end>"))
    (define-key function-key-map (kbd "ESC [ 4 ~") (kbd "<end>"))
    (global-set-key (kbd "ESC _") 'set-mark-command))

This goes in ~/.emacs.  Maybe this even enables home, end, pgdn and pgup.

~/.signature: No such file or directory
