return key in keyboard macros

I am having some problems with the return key when I am defining and
storing keyboard macros.

When emacs runs in its own X window, the return key is translated
into `[return]'. For example,

;; emacs in its own X window
(fset 'foo

On the other hand "emacs -nw" translates the return
key into "\C-m". For example

;; "emacs -nw"
(fset 'bar

The problem is: "emacs -nw" cannot make use of the keyboard macro
foo because here [return] is not bound to anything. (There is no
such compatibility problem with the keyboard macro bar.)

Can I enforce emacs to generate keyboard macros that will work both
with "emacs -nw" and with emacs in its own X window?

Thanks a lot,


PS  I am using GNU emacs 21.2.1
