We're just typing 'make', which unless something changed, should be the
same as 'make --unix'. 'make -p | grep MAKE_MODE' returns 'MAKE_MODE =
unix'. Hmm. I do see that /etc/profile is setting MAKE_MODE=unix so
that may not be make's default.

That example works fine if I do 'make --win32' but fails when just using
'make'. That is a change in behavior from the previous version of make.
The testcase works with either of --unix & --win32 when using make
Using --win32 is not an option for building Mozilla as the common set of
build rules assume that a bourne shell is being used.
