A look a bit further back in the build log reveals what I think may be the
problem: the submodules of one of the git repositories have their URLs specified
using `git://` URLs:
Submodule 'druntime' (git://github.com/ldc-developers/druntime.git) registered
for path 'runtime/druntime'
Submodule 'phobos' (git://github.com/ldc-developers/phobos.git) registered for
(git://github.com/ldc-developers/dmd-testsuite.git) registered for path
Cloning into 'runtime/druntime'...
fatal: unable to connect to github.com:
github.com: Name or service not known
fatal: clone of 'git://github.com/ldc-developers/druntime.git' into submodule
path 'runtime/druntime' failed
Are `git://` URLS genuinely not supported by the launchpad build system? And if
so, is there a chance this could be addressed?
