Uhm... Well, that's true of course. ;)
But some of the man pages are probably not supposed to be in FreeBSD
base at all, dhcpd(8) as an example. It was axed long ago, IIRC, and the
xref from dhclient(8) is maybe just an artifact of that.
It would be good to have the list of missing manpages though, or at
least the script to find them. That way me or someone else can see which
manpages are missing, and maybe hack something together.
