Sorry if my words were poorly chosen, but my point was not about listing
what is acceptable or transforming the GCS in a tutorial.  What I mean
is that when I read:

"Don't allow any part of the build or configure process to open a
network connection in order to download files remotely"

I am confused about knowing if this extends implicitly to the
"pre-configure" process.  In that regard, it can let readers think that
the usage of Gnulib 'bootstrap' script is not compliant with the GCS.
