I have no plans for binary packages.  If a package contains the source
for .oct files, then you will need to have a system capable of running
mkoctfile.  After downloading, the package is compiled, then installed.
I think this is similar to what happens if you download a package from
CPAN that includes C (or other compiled-language) code.
