On my X1 Carbon running openbsd 6.6, the console works fine with the
non-X version of emacs except that the meta key is not set.  One can
emulate the meta key by typing escape followed by x, but this is a
pain.  Maybe there is some mechanism for setting the alt key to meta
in emacs on consoles, but I use X11 so I haven't needed to pursue

Same story on the virtual console window on a vga monitor attached to
a desktop with 6.6.
