Resolves #7497. Conan will occasionally time out bootstrapping its pex in travis, and will regardless add an unnecessary wait time in upstream and downstream CI when most of the time it's not needed.


  • Add an overrideable will_be_invoked() method to PythonToolPrepBase which will avoid bootstrapping its pex tool if it returns False.
  • Override this method in ConanPrep to only bootstrap the conan pex if there are ExternalNativeLibrary targets in play (i.e. if there are any conan packages to resolve).


We avoid an expensive bootstrap phase until it's needed.
