I see this misconception all over the place, that Homebrew is fast because it uses prebuilt binaries, whereas MacPorts makes you wait while software is compiled. It can't just be due to outdated information, if we're more than a decade out from when the buildbot went live.

I know it's just one data point, but I thought the replies I got on this Hacker News comment today were interesting. I can understand why he/she got confused, and I wonder if there's anything MacPorts could do to make it clearer.
