mutt in XFree86 under FreeBSD

Hi folks,

I can't get mutt-1.5.4 to respond to the "End" key in an XFree86-4.3.0
xterm on FreeBSD 5.1-BETA.  It's been happening ever since I started
with mutt a few months back, but it's only just pissed me off enough to
ask for help.

Important bits from .muttrc:

bind generic  <home>  first-entry
bind generic  <end>   last-entry
bind pager    <home>  top
bind pager    <end>   bottom

The software handles these keypresses fine on console, and also in an
xterm on a buddy's Linux box, just not in my XFree86 config.

I'm hoping this is a common FreeBSD user niggle that someone'll have a
quick fix for.
