I guess you could have a look at the net/samba48 port and use that as a 
base to create a new one.
If you are not interested in creating a full port, but want Samba 4.10 
up as quickly as possible, at least you'll find a lot of patches which 
were needed for 4.8 and are possibly useful for 4.10: remove them and 
add new ones as needed.

However, I suppose others might already be working on this, so I suggest 
you don't waste your time in a duplicate effort, but rather contact the 
maintainer and ask about the current status.

As a side note, I tend to run Samba (as well as all other non trivial 
software) in their own jail, so their dependencies won't conflict with 
other software.
Beware, however, that there are some bugs wrt to Samba in a jail, which 
need to be worked around.
