What $TERM should be used with Debian's xterm?


I wonder what $TERM should be used with Debian's xterm. The default
value is "xterm", but this may lead to clashes with other xterm
implementations (e.g. Solaris) and "tput enacs" returns an error
though Debian's xterm supports the ACS. Upstream recommends (or
recommended, as this was a long time ago) to use xterm-xfree86.
But in this case, the kbs terminfo entry has a wrong value: ^H
instead of \177.
