Toggling port dependencies

Some ports exists in multiple versions such as OpenLDAP, the most recent
and recommended is 2.3, but some other ports depends on another version
for example jabberd that requires 2.2. Some ports will let you choose
which version to compile against but jabberd don't.

How to I make a port compile against the installed version or a version
of my choice?

I know that it may fail, but I'd like to try.

Thanks, Erik
