Installing package without recompiling sage from source

I installed the latest binary distribution (Sage 8.0) on Ubuntu 16.04. Then I tried to install an additional package using

sage -i gap_packages

Many hours later, the command is still running. It appears to be recompiling all of Sage from source (starting with GCC). Is this the expected behavior? Aren't there binary versions of the packages available?
