FreeBSD technical questions should be asked at
firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll give you a pointer,
Check the contents of /usr/share/man. This is
the location of the system manpages. If this
folder is empty, or missing, you'll need to
get the contents of the source folder, which
is generally (/usr/)src/share. Running
"make && make install" as root in /usr/src/share
should install the manpages for you.
If you already have manpages in /usr/share/man,
then likely your manpath is not setup properly.
Do you have "manpath.config" in /etc/ ?
