The "default mode" is that which is established without being specific.   The
MAKE_MODE variable is a means by which you can be specific.  The cygwin.bat
file upon a clean room setup does not contain an entry for setting the
MAKE_MODE variable.  The setup.exe program for the net release does set
MAKE_MODE in /etc/profile but doesn't need to as the "default mode" is "UNIX"
and not "WIN32".  The "default mode" for the commercial customer is "WIN32" and
not "UNIX".
