Why doesn't macports install prebuild packages?

I'm using macports for a while, but what I haven't understood yet is,
why macports everytime needs to compile the packages instead of
installing prebuild ones. I would love if it did it like fink or like
apt on ubuntu. Would this be possible for the future?
