Any number of them.  Mess with your inputrc, mess with xterm's
app-defaults, recompile it, etc, etc.

Personally, I define this:

! make home and end behave the RIGHT way 
XTerm*VT100.Translations: #override ~Shift ~Ctrl ~Meta <Key>Home: string("\033OH")\n\
				    ~Shift ~Ctrl ~Meta <Key>End: string("\033OF")

Ain't using a PC keyboard to emulate a VT220 *fun*?
