I'm not sure how to do it with IRIX's ksh as I prefer zsh, but with that
the following commands do the job :-

bindkey "^[[1~" beginning-of-line
bindkey "^[[4~" end-of-line

This won't work with winterm, but I did test it with aterm. And of
course it will only work for the shell itself. As to what files to
edit ... ~/.zshrc will do for zsh.
