installing binary archives as non-root user

I use macports as a non-root user, and am trying to find a way to still be
able to install binary archives. 

I got myself write-access to /opt folder, and so I can install many ports.
However, I cannot get access to /Applications folder, and therefore, cannot
install archives of certain ports like Python and Qt5, which write into
/Applications/MacPorts folder.

I did ofcourse change the applications_dir, and it works if I build from
source, but I want to install binary. Is there a workaround for this?
