With emerge there are currently at least two possible ways to accomplish
this:

1) Put the package in /etc/portage/package.mask (it will trigger
warnings about the installed package being masked though)

2) Use the emerge --exclude option.

If those don't fit well enough, we can add yet another way to do it.
