How to test for dependencies on the compiling puppet node

Is it possible to test, in a puppet manifest, for a dependency on the compiling node (the master or the applying node in case of a masterless setup)?

I've written a profile manifest for base nodes in my network. All nodes should include this profile, including the puppet masters. In this profile, some parts use puppetdb. This gets installed via a puppetmaster profile manifest. I need a way to conditionally skip the parts of the base profile manifest that uses puppetdb, until it is installed.

All functions including generate(), file(), or template() occur on the master during compilation. Hopefully that works out for you!
