Svalbardcaretaker is on a distinguished road
I can't really comment on Elbereth/Archer builds, but some general advice:

Sounds like you missmanage your XP a little. Taking forging is already a hit (probably necessary for good bow), but sounds like you also take unnecessary abilities. Keen senses, formidable don't really do anything to help you with "killing monsters" and "not getting killed by monsters". Try to put more XP into pure combat numbers, archery+evasion. If you put enough into evasion you won't need Elbereth song until you are firmly in the midgame.

Not singing all the time also solves your "aggro the dungeon" problem.
