In that case I'd recommend you create a local repo with just thrift in it. This means it'll take precedence over the current version in MacPorts.

There is documentation available inside the sources.conf:

The highlight for setting up your local repo:
mkdir -p ~/ports/devel/thrift
cp `port file thrift` ~/ports/devel/thrift/
cd ~/ports && portindex

Then you add it to your sources.conf, so you have something like this:
file:///Users/me/ports [default,nosync]

You can then edit ~/ports/devel/thrift/Portfile to be the version you're after (change version, update checksums, anything else you see fit).
