Make sure NetworkManager.service is active/running. My guess is that it's not "enabled" for automatic startup, but GNOME still launches it via DBus (but Blackbox of course doesn't). nm-applet is optional, but still recommended, since it handles interactive prompts (e.g. Wi-Fi password prompts).

It hooks into libXRandR and libXinerama and replaces certain, configurable monitor configurations with multiple virtual monitors. A tool that comes with this package can be ...

You need to tell your xterm to simulate a VT52, and you need to tell your environment that you run a VT52. So use xterm -ti vt52 -tn vt52. The first parameter sets up VT52 emulation, the second parameter sets up $TERM in the virtual environment (it is a virtual terminal, after all). On my system, this is enough to make "clear" work in a VT52 emulation.
