emerge -u world with native language for openoffice

I just installed openoffice-1.1.3 in Gentoo 2004.3 with:
LANGUAGE=SWED emerge openoffice

And now I want to 'emerge --update --deep world' and it starts installing openoffice-1.1.4 in english.

To my question: How do I tell emerge to use the latest stable swedish version of openoffice when updating. Right now the latest swedish version of openoffice is 1.1.3 so I want to leave it alone when updating world untill a newer version arrives.

Thanks... That solves it for now... But if I use:


in: /etc/portage/package.mask will never install any potential new releases of the swedish version of openoffice...
