I forgot to mention that my workstation is a Redhat distro. :)

I was unable to find a practical way to enter any keycodes. 
In config.h the following was defined:
/* Define if you don't want support for the backspace key */
/* #undef NO_BACKSPACE_KEY */

/* Define if you don't want support for the (non-keypad) delete key */
/* #undef NO_DELETE_KEY */


Checking the README gives "./configure --disable-backspace-key 
--disable-delete-key", which disables aterm's handling, and let's the xserver 
do it. This seems to fix the back-space problem.

Running vim via remote shell to an HP-UX 10.20 machine, still produce so many 
output bugs that it is impossible to use. It's like typing without visual 
feedback. :(
