comment vim on FreeBSD does not react on arrow keys correctly and other vi-like behaviours
As I interpret the question, it looks like he wasn't just asking about the delete key, or just arrow keys typing letters in insert mode. It looks to me that he's a Linux user using FreeBSD for the first time and frustrated with the VI defaults as compared to the standard defaults used in most Linux distros. The options I posted will get VI working just like it usually does in Linux when installing vim-enhanced. So I think it's a good addition to the accepted answer, and also there's no need to mess with terminal settings (at least I didn't need to). Hopefully my info helps others.
