Actually, I think the best answer for you is

   (define-key function-key-map "\C-?" "\C-d")

DEL is for backward deletion, so the number of people who want to
use it for forward deletion is rather small.  If your `delete' key
sends a DEL, then the best answer is generally to fix the thing
that makes it work that way (typically, the console or the text-terminal)
so that it sends some other key sequence.
