Bug#769687: no network is a common condition

Hi Martin,

I'm not sure the downgraded severity is correct. AFAIK it has been commonly 
agreed that relying on network access for a package build is a serious bug and 
https://wiki.debian.org/buildd seems to confirm this: " most buildds will have 
no network access available. Your package build+test process must not attempt 
to use the network or assume that any network interface is available."

_Maybe_ this bug is not serious if it's an arch:all package, but then I'd 
argue that it's still an important bug.
