in /usr/ports/distfiles, do you still have a copy of the version you want?
if so, you feeding the /path/filename to pkg_add should, in theory, work.
to my knowledge, vanilla pkg_add (ie. with no switches) shouldn't be
pulling down a new version. normally, that only happens when you use
the -r (remote) switch.
you might also want to look at the /usr/ports/sysutils/portdowngrade. i
haven't used it myself. i presume that it requires for all the older
versions of the necessary files (ie. dependencies) to still be available,
but it is certainly worth investigating.
