Clearing Login Screen on Console

I run FreeBSD 8.2-p5 (release) and I can clear the terminal at the login
prompt by hitting CTRL-L on my keyboard. However, I've installed FreeBSD
9.0-R3 and CTRL-L doesn't clear the screen.

Personally, I like having CTRL-L to clear the login prompt before and
after I log in, and I'd like to see that on FreeBSD 9 as well. Is there
something I can do with /etc/gettytab to get this behavior working again?

Thanks in advance,
