> (b) If you are on a supported platform (currently 10.6 / 10.7 Intel x86 / x86-64) using default variants and with default install path, *and* the port's license permits binary redistribution, *and* you have not forced source only with -s or the appropriate macports.conf configuration item, then it will try to download a binary package.

Just to be pedantic, MacPorts supports OS X 10.6, 10.7 *and* 10.8. The difference with 10.8 though is there is no build bot for it yet, so no binary installations are available for that platform yet :(
