Set default python to 2.5?

Can anyone tell me how to set the default python to 2.5. I've updated python 
to 2.5 about 2 weeks ago when it became default. Since some were having 
issues, it was defaulted back to 2.4. 
I'm not having any problems (and I have lots of ports that use python), and 
would like to keep 2.5, but everytime I portupgrade, I'm asked to "upgrade" 
python-2.5 to python-2.4.3,1 and anything that depends on python which would 
need updating tries to install 2.4.3,1. 

Is there a make.conf flag or something I can do to make 2.5 my default python?
