See http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/technotes/guides/net/proxies.html

I too believe this is a network issue (see
where the connection is made to
http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets, and note that you can
make a local copy and override the URL by setting the
-Dorg.whattf.datatype.charset-registry system property; I don't know
how to set it through build.py though, as I never used it)
