Ahh -- I was running rpmbuild --define 'buildnonet 0', but the spec file 
doesn't actually respect any preset value. Might I suggest "%global 
buildnonet 0%{!?buildwithnet:1}"?

Setting buildnonet to 0 does refer to remote yum sources as expected -- 
but that doesn't go happily either, it smells to me like it's trying to 
refer to Fedora-devel packages, which the older EL yum can't handle:

[...and so on, for other mirrors attempted]
