You can use the "if" or "unless" attributes of a target - in that case
targets will be executed only if a property is set(not set). Example:

<target name="build-module-A" if="module-A-present"/>

Also you can use conditionals, as you said. Example(Something like this):

<condition property="your_property_to_set">
      <and>
                 <isset property="property_to_check" />
                 <not>
                       <isset property="your_property_to_check" />
                 </not>
      </and>
</condition>*
