You don't need fully programmable matter in order to grow. A termite-like
model (macroscale, or microscale) would do nicely. Both fuel and substrate
can come either from natural gas lines, or in situ photovoltaics (enrich
and fixate air CO2/H2O as feedstock).

3d systems for incremental deposition of more or less arbitrary shapes 
in building construction exist.
