Restore Emacs Meta Key in FreeBSD

When working under FreeBSD console at a PC, I cannot use ALT as META key in the Emacs. It means the Alt key is uneffective. Thus, I had to press ESC then X to input Emacs commands. It is such a trouble than I often press wrongly. Now there is a method to use ALT as META function, Just use the tool kbdcontrol to load the emacs keyboard map, us.emacs.kbd.
kbdcontrol -l us.emacs
