OpenBLAS binary packages

Dear MacPorts users and developers,

I am trying to understand why I am not able to get the OpenBLAS port to install exclusively from binary packages, i.e. using something like:
  sudo port -b install OpenBLAS
Even if I prepare a local repository with the prebuilt binary packages it indicates that it is not able to find any binary package and the above command fails. I have no such problem with other ports.
I had a quick look to see if there is something in the Portfile itself that forces compilation from source but did not find anything obvious. Is there such a mechanism? what is it? and can this be disabled / overridden?

Kind regards.
