Installing a vulnerable port

Hi all,

I am new to FreeBSD and the ports collection and have hit probably a 
trivial problem which I hope someone can help with.

I'm trying to set up a print & file server. I have installed 5.3-RELEASE 
and successfully compiled a new kernel with lots of stuff removed that I 
know I don't need. Everything seems to be working fine to this point.

What I am now doing is trying to install APSFILTER from the ports 
collection. I have installed and run CVSup, and portaudit. When I try to 
build APSFILTER it goes well until it gets to the point where it needs 
Samba (smbclient). It seems there is a known vulnerability and so 
refuses to build it telling me to update my ports tree. I know the tree 
is up to date, so I assume there is no fix for this particular problem 
yet. How can I force the build to ignore this problem for now?
