You can use
 $> sudo port -bp archivefetch $portlist
to get all the binary archives available and ignore those that aren't.
This is one of the few places where `-p` is not harmful. Adding `-b`
might help in this case because it doesn't give up after three servers
that don't have the binary archive.
