Use xmodmap to see what happends where Meta_L is bound.  In my keyboard
with a clean XFree86 installation and US-English keyboard map, it was:

    % xmodmap -pke | grep Meta
    keycode 115 = Meta_L
    keycode 116 = Meta_R
    % xmodmap -pke | grep Alt
    keycode 64 = Alt_L
    keycode 113 = Alt_R

So, to bind the left ALT key of my keyboard to Meta, I did:

    % cat >> ~/.Xmodmap
    keycode 64 = Meta_L
    ^D
    % xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap

The next time I started Emacs, the left ALT key did work as a meta key.
Putting the changes to the default xmodmap in ~/.Xmodmap ensures that
they'll be there the next time you start X11 too.
