It's a missing feature of MacPorts, at least for those that build from source. Is this information available throught the JSON API ?

What we really want is a web site where this information can more easily be seen. I'm not writing that web site now, but if I get around to the scripts and they give me the information we want, moving that into web space might be the next task on the list.
This was a GSoC project that didn't get done.
I don't really want the public making massive numbers of http requests to the buildmaster (which is what the script would do) because I fear it might be slow and clog up the bandwidth. I can run the scripts on the same network as the buildmaster and so not use up its bandwidth.
