It is fairly common for users to find an update to a port that won't build on 
their system for some reason.

It would be nice to have a simple command, like 

port peg PORTNAME

that stops the port from attempting to update until the peg is released. Such a 
command does exist in other package mgmt systems.

This can be done manually with a local repo, but it is a bit of a PITA to do 
that for casual users.

Perhaps MacPorts could have a built-in local repo, and "port peg PORTNAME" 
would copy the current portfile out of the installed registry in there. That 
sounds pretty easy to do.

Perhaps there is some easy way to keep a list of ports that are ignored for 
port upgrade outdated.
