> is there a list of which ports are available as a binary (for Lion)?  I noticed that, on upgrade, a number of ports are installed from binaries rather than being compiled on my machine.  For small ports this is nice but quite unimportant, but for stuff like the GCC ports it would be nice to know if I'm going to get some serious compilation time in front of me.

Be worry-free, just have MacPorts run in binary-only mode:
sudo port -b install x y z
