re portmanager, how to prevent upgrade of held ports

I am trying out portmanager-0.2.2, on a 5.3-RELEASE box.
I have openoffice-184.108.40.20640810 installed. I don't want to upgrade
openoffice at this time, as I don't have the space for a full compile
and will wait for a new package.
I have set openoffice to be held in pkgtools.conf in /usr/local/etc.
Portupgrade honours this setting. Portmanager doesn't, therefore every
time I attempt to run portmanager it tries to compile
I have looked at portmanager and cannot find a way to prevent it
updating certain ports, and it doesn't honour the hold_pkgs in
Any ideas as to how to make portmanager ignore held ports?
This problem makes portmanager unusable for me, as it updates openoffice
first, so it never actually gets to the smaller out of date ports.
Many thanks in advance
