Yes. You can run the port_binary_distributable.tcl script to see whether or not a binary package can be distributed, and if not, why not:

$ ~/macports/macports-infrastructure/jobs/port_binary_distributable.tcl -v doxygen
"doxygen" is not distributable because its license "GPL-2" conflicts with license "GPL-3+" of dependency "bison"

We have not yet brought automatic distfile mirroring online on the new server after leaving the macOS forge servers, though I am manually adding a few distfiles here and there as needed. (It's not particularly needed for doxygen because you can get the distfiles from the project's own servers.)
