Use new DEPS conditionals. See https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/d/msg/infra-announce/A6_zQKzCHDo/ZKqSptzeBgAJ. This allows us to avoid checking out unnecessary things (right now every Windows bot downloads clang). We also can maintain the SDE bits in DEPS rather than having to update the recipe for it. This is the first half of the change which conditions things on variables but leaves the defaults as they are. This will be followed up by a change to the recipe to set the variables, then to switch the defaults.

BoringSSL is a fork of OpenSSL that is designed to meet Google's needs.
Although BoringSSL is an open source project, it is not intended for general use, as OpenSSL is. We don't recommend that third parties depend upon it. Doing so is likely to be frustrating because there are no guarantees of API or ABI stability.
Programs ship their own copies of BoringSSL when they use it and we update everything as needed when deciding to make API changes. This allows us to mostly avoid compromises in the name of compatibility. It works for us, but it may not work for you.
BoringSSL arose because Google used OpenSSL for many years in various ways and, over time, built up a large number of patches that were maintained while tracking upstream OpenSSL. As Google's product portfolio became more complex, more copies of OpenSSL sprung up and the effort involved in maintaining all these patches in multiple places was growing steadily.
Currently BoringSSL is the SSL library in Chrome/Chromium, Android (but it's not part of the NDK) and a number of other apps/programs.
