Default Use "legacy mode" for `file` on Mac OSX

For some reason `file` on Mac OSX has different arguments than BSD and
Linux; -i no longer prints out the mime strings. With the environment
variable COMMAND_MODE set to "legacy", `file` behaves more like it does
on Linux and BSD, i.e., `file -i` prints the mime type.
