Good idea, so say you want to install some set of ports, one of which
has many deps:

> port -p -b install port1 port2 port3 big-port

port1 port2 go in fine, port3 isn't available as a binary and one of
the deps of big-port isn't available.

You can then check what's missing with:

> port echo port1 port2 port3 big-port rdepof:big-port and not installed

You would see something like:

> port3
> big-port
> big-port-dep1

You can then install the ports that you have to manually compile when
you have the processor time:

> port install port3 big-port
