Hosts.equiv is probably created when the OS is installed. You can create your own, and paste this in at the top of the file:
# hosts.equiv This file describes the names of the hosts which are
# to be considered "equivalent", i.e. which are to be
# trusted enough for allowing rsh(1) commands.
# hostname
