Does said port appear in the HOLD_PKGS array within pkgtools.conf?  From
that file:

  # HOLD_PKGS: array
  # This is a list of ports you don't want portupgrade(1) to upgrade,
  # portversion(1) to suggest upgrading, or pkgdb(1) to fix.
  # You can use wildcards ("ports glob" and "pkgname glob").
  # -f/--force with each command will override the held status.

and when & why should -f be specify?

When you want to force the upgrade of a package even though you've "held" it in pkgtools.conf.
