Thanks for the tip. However a

  kill -HUP `cat /var/run/filterdns.pid`

doesn't seem to cause an immediate update of aliases. filterdns seems to
wait until the end of the current interval before doing anything. It
would do the same with sending HUP (changing aliases as already done

Trivial, just run it:

  /usr/local/sbin/filterdns -p /var/run/filterdns.pid -i 300 -c 
/var/etc/filterdns.conf -d 1

This incantation is run by pfsense. Doing the same from the command line
starts up a new instance of filterdns each time. It also updates aliases
