You can't do that by use of pkg(8) -- you'ld have to directly manipulate
the pkg database, which is not recommended.
The simplest way to achieve what you want would be to just:
pkg delete clamav-unofficial-sigs
and then reinstall the developer version. (Should work fine for this
port, but in general, this trick will fail if the package you're trying
to replace is a dependency of something else, as pkg(8) will reinstall
the apparently missing dependnecy on the next update.)
The best way of doing this would be to update the clamav-unofficial-sigs
port to install the developer version you prefer, and preferably submit
your changes so they can be committed to the ports.
