ISTR when I added the TERM=xterm-new advice it was only as a "just in
case" warning. I just installed a Debian chroot in my FreeBSD VM and
verified that it's not needed, at least for normal use of backspace /
delete in emacs, nano and zile.
No problem then, thanks for warning us.
 Btw they have a debootstrap port, ain't this nice?
