Hello David,
I think so, the parameter you need in psql command is -w mipassword.
But, you have to understand that use this form or set PGPASSWORD aren't safer.
Exist a file (pg_hba.conf) for this process ir task.

Is setting it as an environment variable an option? 

Alternatively, a service file?

PG v9.5.2 on RHEL

I like to use an alias to connect to my favorite DBs but don't like to enter 
passwords.  I used to just disable passwords (working behind a firewall), but 
this one is different.  I see nothing in the interactive connect string where I 
can enter the password...

psql -h thehost -U memyselfi mydb

Missing something like "-p mypassword"

Is there a way I can stick the pw in the linux alias definition ?

Just thinking something like this may be available since hardcoded passwords 
are supported in perl/dbi, pg driver

Thanks !
