Well, you can do a `sudo port fetch port1 port2 port3 port4` whenever  
you want, to pre-fetch. As long as the portfile doesn't get updated  
since then, you should be able to build anytime later and it will use  
the fetched distfiles.

Just remember, if you do a `sudo port clean --all portname` or --dist  
then it will wipe the fetched distfile.
