Cursor Keys in vi?

Does anybody knows the answer to the original question? I happen to have
the same problem with my LFS 5.0.

I think it is related to the xterm terminal, because that's reported on
X and on a SSH session. This only happens with vi, nano, and the like;
bash is ok.

The cursor keys work fine in nano, but end-of-line and beginning-of-line
do not seem to work (they show an H or an F letter instead). (The
letter+newline happens on vi, also.)

I have tried many inputrc configurations, but none of them work

Any hint on where to look?
