Hi again Cedric.
I haven't had the time to fix with this until now. That's why this thread 
reply comes one months after the last post.
It seems like the $if:0 syntax works ok. Using this I can avoid hardcoded ip:s 
for the interfaces in pf.conf. But I also assumed that I should be able to 
use $if:1 as well when I have a "inet alias" in my hostname.fxp1 file. But 
trying to use anything else but ":0" doesn't work.
Using $if:1 in pf.conf with a verbose reload produce a:
 no IP address found for fxp1:1
/etc/pf.conf:202: could not parse host specification
pfctl: Syntax error in config file: pf rules not loaded
(The hosts and hostname.fxp1 files are ok. and both names are in the DNS as 
well except for the PTR:s.)
Maybe you know why it's not possible to specify the "inet alias" ip from the 
hostname file with ":1" in pf.conf ? I think it should work. But how ?  
Otherwise this syntax seems to be  useless if only ":0" works.
Thanks in advance
