Portage uses cascading profiles now, so /etc/make.profile inherits
use.defaults from /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/use.defaults

That would be unworkable as flags are added or removed. It would also
override and changes to the defaults without your knowing why. Get into
the habit of using -av with emerge. You'll son see when you need to make
changes to the flags.
