And what if I have no access to internet at compile time or if I 
don't want to waste my traffic?

Imho it is bad idea to access internet for compilation purposes 
without expilcit user permission to do this. Programs shouldn't 
surf the internet on their own. This can be optional but _not_ 
default behaviour.
