Actually the former is incorrect b/c a keyword isn't specified for the 
package.  You'd need:

echo "=media-gfx/fontforge-20060406 ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords

(and ~x86 should be ~amd64 for those running 64-bit)

That would have the effect of only allowing that particular _unstable_ 
version of fontforge to be installed.  Once a newer version was marked 
stable, that version would be superseded.  However, the latter one will 
continually install the most recent unstable version of fontforge.  To 
me, the former seems better if I'm trying to keep an overall stable system.
