Building the book offline

Yesterday I was several hours offline and tried to build the book. But oops, that failed because the intersphinx links to the Community Guide (Lino Community Guide) work only via internet. Indeed when building the book on travis or readthedocs it is the normal approach to load intersphinx links from the objects.inv of the currently published version. For intersphinx links to Python modules we can get the intersphinx_urls, but cg has no Python module.
