Looking only a bit closer shows:

# echo $TERM; infocmp | fgrep kdch          
      kcuf1=\EOC, kcuu1=\EOA, kdch1=\E[3~, kend=\EOF, kent=\EOM,

so xterm works, but:

# echo $TERM ; infocmp | fgrep kdch

... and no key, no works!

However, I do not know if a real vt220 has a Delete key at all. I only have a
vt420, which has one - and so has the terminfo entry.

So, basically the answer is: edit /etc/ttys and change vt220 to wsvt25
for your ttyE* devices. Or do the equivalent change to your shell startup

I am not sure why the term type has not been fixed on most architectures,
a few get it right (dreamcast, ews4800, macppc, sparc64).
