you can specify in your macports.conf, or on the command line for one-offs, that you only want to install binaries.
sudo port -b install my-big-port
will install the binary if it exists, or abort.

I’m looking for a flag that would just check if a binary is available for my particular configuration? I’m looking for something similar to “dry run” (-y). I did try -y on the hopes that it would show what would try to download, but even with -v it doesn’t show that level of detail.
