I have two aliases on some system to cope with that:

alias ^H='stty erase ^H'
alias ^?='stty erase ^?'

(not cut-paste-able) so I only have to hit the <- key and enter to make
it the erase key. I stole this idea from somebody else though, and it
may not work in all shells if they are strict about alias names.
