This is what I did to get delete and backspace working properly. I
followed the instructions of
and I did this part:
                     2. optional editing of custom.map (recommended)

If you want to be able to generate characters such as  in a very
convenient way, you can add a
compose key to your custom.map. To use the right control-key, add the

keycode  97 = Compose

Set the following environment variable (in /etc/profile, or
/etc/csh.cshrc) for bash and tcsh: 

for bash:   export LC_CTYPE=iso-8859-1 

So you are saying to delete this line from /etc/profile?

(As for older days, I have had this system running for one year only)
