stty -a. Look at `erase'. `erase2' is not supported by "a lot" of
apps, but more and more seem to be supporting it. I've a PR that's
still open, in attempt to get less/more to support erase2.
Also, if you're not truly on the FreeBSD VGA console, cons25 is
incorrect. In that case, try xterm or vt100.
