The first thing you should do is read the man page, it says:

			  If this file exists, portmaster will ignore this
			  port for the purpose of dependency updates.

So you want to do something like:

 touch /var/db/pkg/squid-<version>/+IGNOREME.

It will still ask whether it should update that port anyway,
which is a bit annoying, but maybe there is a flag to turn
that question off, I haven't looked yet.
