If the dependencies are properly listed by the package maintainer, and
they're installed prior to trying to install the main package, it obviously
won't need to download any.
But if there is no real option to pass to the build/install process to
prevent downloading additional modules, that's a little frustrating. It's a
nice option for those who like it, but it should be easily disableable.
