Default Installing ports offline

I'd like to download some bz2 source files over a fast connection, and use them to update a few of my ports on my dial-up-connected computer.

For example, I grab claws-mail-3.4.0.tar.bz2 (5MB, or two seconds on a fast connection, twenty minutes on dial up) and copy it to /usr/ports/mail/claws-mail/distfiles, then # make install clean, only cranking up the interweb if there are some relatively small depenedencies.

Is this possible / sensible ?
