I think this should fix it for you:

  bind "\C-l":clear-screen

At the bash prompt, type "help bind" for more information.

AFAICS, "bind -p" does *not* provide output in a form that can be reused as
input: you need to remove the space after the colon. YMMV - I have bash version
4.1.7(2)-release - yours may differ.

Cheers ... Duncan.
