Hi Fernando,

you are right that the functionality differs significantly.
But if I was sure which does what, I wouldn't need to consult man(1).

mount(8) has a reference to setfacl(1) e.g. and comm(1) has cmp(1) and diff(1)
in the SEE ALSO section.
These are functionality wise very different too.
SEE ALSO is meant to guide users into a possibly better matching direction,
which tail or sort (-r) might be if one confused the function of rev(1). At
least that's how I've been unsing the SEE ALSO section of FreeBSD's man pages,
and especially tail(1) was a nice hint for somebody looking for a  "|
