We cannot distribute a binary for mongodb because it has a dependency on openssl, and their licenses conflict.

    % cd ~/Projects/MacPorts/trunk/base/portmgr/jobs
    % ./port_binary_distributable.tcl -v mongodb
    dependency 'openssl' has license 'OpenSSL' which conflicts with license 'agpl' from 'mongodb'

Admittedly, it's only a build dependency (mongodb -> scons -> python27 -> openssl). Don't know if that makes a difference.
