Almost. It looks like the following does what I want:
    (defmacro cw/set-bounds (start-sym end-sym)
      `(if (equal (symbol-value ,start-sym) (symbol-value ,end-sym))
           (progn
             (set ,start-sym (point-min))
             (set ,end-sym (point-max)))
         (progn
           (set ,start-sym (or ,start-sym (point-min)))
           (set ,end-sym (or ,end-sym (point-max))))))

In the or's the parameter is used instead of the hard variables start
and end.

Thanks.
