Add to your ~/.emacs file:

  (global-set-key "\C-?" 'delete-char)

You can test this without exiting and reloading by putting your cursor
at the end of the line, then:

  <ESC>-x eval-last-sexp <ENTER>

Interactively, you can do:

  <ESC>-x global-set-key <ENTER>

Then on prompt press <DELETE>, then on prompt type:
