I agree, I worked a couple of days on changing www/envoy to build using bazel last year, but I never managed to stop it from fetching files in the build phase. It was quite a nightmare, unfortunately I forgot most of what I learned about it and all the hacks I tried to make it work - my takeaway was that bazel isn’t meant to be used without being connected to the internet.
