I short-circuited to hosts and ipfw.
# ipfw show 2
00002 14 864 reject ip from any to 127.0.0.2
# telnet ad.doubleclick.net 80
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.2: Permission denied
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host
('course, DNS is better with multiple machines. You could just burn a
single RFC1918 address for rejecting all the ad-type things)
