    regarding .DEFAULT in makefile

    .PHONY: mkdirs
    mkdirs: work_mkdir www_mkdir
    @echo "santhosh..........i am in .PHONY: mkdirs"

    .PHONY: work_mkdir
    @echo "santhosh.........i am in .PHONY: work_mkdir"
    @mkdir -p $(WORK_DIR)

    .PHONY: www_clean www_mkdir
    @echo "santhosh...........i am in .PHONY: www_clean www_mkdir"
    @mkdir -p www$(C_TOOL)
    @rm -f .www$(C_TOOL) www$(C_TOOL)/*.*

    .PHONY: www
    ifeq ($(filter USE_BUILT_IN_WEB_FILES,$(DEFINES)),)
    @echo "santhosh.........i am in .PHONY: wwww"
    www: www_mkdir $(ALL_WWW_FILES)

    @echo "santhosh .............i am in default"
    lftp -c "debug 10; open -u admin,PASS $<; rm -r -f /http; mkdir /http/config; mput -O /http/config www$(C_TOOL)/*;"

    .PHONY and .DEFAULT are not rules, they are built-in variables to specify rules.
