At login make the following command:
   tset -e '<keystroke>'
where <keystroke> is your "delete key"

If  you use csh or tcsh, you may put the command into your .login file.
Let's say, you use the vi editor, open a line,and type
   tset .e '<ctr>V<keystroke>'
If you do not like to see a message at startup,  you can give the option
-Q to tset.

For bash/sh/pdksh, you should test if the shell is a login-shell, before
you issue the command.

Good luck
