I believe you need to use the -sb flag at the sime time, i.e.:

  xterm -sb -rightbar

A simple -*bar doesn't work for me (in my regular LFS, running openbox)
but adding -sb works. My .Xdefaults resources for xterm disable the
scrollbar, and I believe that trumps the -*bar switch; specifying the
-sb switch overrides the setting in the resource file.
