If this is to be a "permanent" freeze, you could put it in to the /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf. Look for "HOLD_PKGS". It defines an array of name globs that expand to the name of the held ports. For example, I use Exim 3 and don't want to have it upgraded to 4, so my HOLD_PKGS looks like this: HOLD_PKGS = [ 'bsdpan-*', 'exim*', ] The bsdpan one seems to be there by default.
