I don't get the same. Did you have the .clr file in the same directory
as the .bil file when you imported that with r.in.gdal ?

As Markus suggested, you can use r.colors.

I am sorry, but this again sounds like you did not read the manual (I am 
not saying you didn't, but the way you formulate your question just 
makes it sound that way). Did you try to run the command ? With which 
settings ? Please try to work out these things on your own, before you 
ask others.

The manual:
http://grass.itc.it/grass63/manuals/html63_user/r.colors.html (or just 
push 'help' button in the module window).

In brief, to do what Markus suggested:



To see the new colors applied, you have to push the "Redraw all layers" 
button (2nd from the left) in the Map Display.
