When you perform FreeBSD 6.x minimal installation, it skips additional distribution sets such as man and info pages. Man and info page offers extensive documentation.
It is very easy to add man or info pages to FreeBSD post installation. You need to use tool called sysinstall. The sysinstall utility is the pre and post installation application provided by the FreeBSD. It is console based and is divided into a number of menus and screens that you can use to configure and control the installation process. It can be use to install packages very easily:

b) Type the following command:
Please note that if you are using FreeBSD old version such as 5.0 use /stand/sysinstall command (path is changed):

Configure > Distributions > Select Man and Info by press space bar > Ok
Now select man and info pages.
Select FTP site and it will start to installation.
