If I remember correctly, this file will be created only if
needed (e. g. by a program or by the user). There should be
a template / example in /usr/share/examples/etc/make.conf.

I don't have a v10 system running so I can't check, but this
approach has been used in previous FreeBSD versions.

Also check "man make.conf" to see if the manual does mention
something different (section FILES).
