Is there a way in emacs to find out if I am using the X Windows interface or

I have found that the keys on the auxiliary keypad are defined differently
in X Windows  and non X windows. I would like to check if it is in X-Windows
and set some keys differently if it is not.

You shouldn't need to do that: Emacs should map the escape sequences sent by
your terminal to the same function key symbols as under X.  See the "Function
Keys" and "Terminal Init" nodes of the manual.
