You can manually achieve this if prebuilt archives of the software are distributable. You would download the archive and list the contents. For example, to see what's in qt5-mac you would:
 1 download an archive from such as `curl -O`
 2 list the files of the archive such as `tar jtf qt5-mac-5.3.2_1.darwin_14.x86_64.tbz2`
