By default internet requiring tests are not run. You have to turn them 
on with --network or say yes during an interactive Build.pl run.

I'm marking your enhancement request on bugzilla as invalid, but if you 
are running into some issue that gives you internet tests when you don't 
want them, please update the bug report with details.

Though in any case, I'm not sure how having the internet tests turned on 
prevents the above?
