Default FreeBSD equivalent to OpenBSD mk.conf FETCH_PACKAGES=Yes

I'm trying to save time when building applications from the FreeBSD ports tree. OpenBSD has a ports tree setting...

/etc/mk.conf
-----------------
FETCH_PACKAGES=Yes

...that will download the pre-compiled pkgs for any dependencies that it can, saving enormous amounts of time since it doesn't have to compile every single one required to build the port.

Does any know if FreeBSD offers this capability as well?
