how keep particular broken port from trying to reinstall?

1. Each time I upgrade any ports, automatically MacPorts notices that the port for qt4-mac is broken and attempts to build it again.

Is there any way to do upgrades of other points without the time-consuming (always failing) attempt to rebuild qt4-mac?

2. I’d try to uninstall qt4-mac and re-install the older version that, I believe, was unbroken.  But there are a whole bunch of other ports that depend on it. How may I get around uninstalling those dependent ports and reinstalling them later?  (I believe I need to use a “-f” parameter but otherwise am uncertain how to do this.)
