May be I mistated the question. My LAN is _not_ This
is a private address reserved for administrative purposes (reboot the
CM, see the power levels and noise in the line, problems in the
connection ,etc.). So I have my LAN that get's NATed when going out to
the CM. I've added the 'no nat' clause. But since DHCP and aliased IPs
do not like each other, I have to ssh and use lynx to check my CM
status. Not a nice thing to do.

Did you mean ?:
        block out on $ExtIF all
        pass out on $ExtIF from $ExtIP to any
        pass out on $ExtIF from $ExtAliasIP to any
Which is exacly equivalent to:
        pass out quick on $ExtIF from $ExtIP to any
        pass out quick on $ExtIF from $ExtAliasIP to any
        block out quick on $ExtIF all
Whith the only difference that in your example pf has to skip steps
downward and pass through the 'block all' rule innecesarily.
