Unfortunately, I don't have access to a tar or source version of the program. But it sounds like installing it this way so that it is not in the rpm database would solve the problem of YaST trying to update it each time.
Basically, what I have done is just ignore the one package and continue to update the necessary updates and leave that one as is (i.e. I'm just going to live with it for now). I'm planning on updating that machine to a newer version of SuSE anyways which, I think, would make the piece of software (at least this version) obsolete anyways.
If anyone tries Shen's solution or has any other solution, please post.
