Hi all,

I have some questions regarding binary installs. 

1. I would like to know if there is some way to understand if a port was installed from sources or from binaries. I'd assume this might be a information which would have to go into the DB on activation, but is not recorded (yet) ???

2. Is there a way to "fetch" available binary packages, without installing the right away? There is the possibility do fetch all sources relevant for some port. Sometimes I would like to do something very similar with binary packages to install later when offline or on a pure internet connection. Is there a way to do this?
