More problems with Grass5.0beta3

Good morning all,
Well I managed to get Grass5.0beta3 to build under Irix 6.5.2, but I
have yet to find out if it actually works!
There seems to be a major problem with the keyboard mapping. I can't get
Grass started, because it doesn't know that I have hit the escape key
after entering the location, mapset and database in the startup screen.
The escape key is not the only one which gives trouble :-(
One must be very careful with text entry as there is no delete or
backspace working either.
I am working from an X terminal.
I would be *very* grateful if someone can point out how this problem can
be solved.
