Trying to use the "whereis" command, e.g. whereis XFree86-4 only to get the error:

Warning: Couldn't stat file /usr/local/man!
Warning: Couldn't stat file /usr/X11R6/man!

Neither of these directories exist (local, X11R6).  When I installed FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE I installed bin, crypto, man and ports.
