MAKEDEV is deprecated; if you have no /dev/dsp, it's likely
because you either have unsupported audio hardware, or,
even more likely, you haven't loaded a driver that matches
your hardware, so devfs doesn't bother to create a device

Try placing
   in /boot/loader.conf --- this will cause all known sound driver
modules to be loaded into your kernel at boot; then reboot and
show us the output of dmesg, e.g.:

    # grep pcm /var/run/dmesg.boot
