I'm pretty sure you can't do this, *unless* there's someone actually 
tracking  a seperate port on that version. ( i didn't check but it 
doesn't sound like it from your post).

To stop ports tree updates from clobbering your v27, you'd need to 
exclude this from your cvssup or whatever you use to update your tree.

portdowngrade will get you back to an arbitrary older version if your 
tree already has the newer version.
