[OS X Emacs] Keypad mapping

I have a bunch of things linked to keypad keys.  (So, kill me.  Long trained fingers.)  At some point, binding to the keypad '=' become impossible:  At a low level, this just comes through a '='.

I don't have a complete history, but as of Aquamacs 1.5, it came through as
<kp-equal>.  As of Aquamacs 3.2, it came through as just '='.  I kept putting off trying to understand exactly why, but it's still the same in Aquamacs 3.4.

There is one other key that's been treated oddly for as long as I can determine:  The keypad 'clear' key at some very low level gets translated to C-l.  This I can live with though it would be nice for it come through as <kp-clear>.

I'm seeing this on Sierra though it doesn't seem to be OS-related.  I'm using an Apple keyboard though other keyboards that have keypads seem to behave the same.

Am I missing something, or is there really a bug here?
