Error from systinstall while trying to install man page packages

I am attempting to install the man page distribution from sysinstall on 
my RELENG_7 box and getting errors that my distribution doesn't exist.  
I assume that it is due to the fact that I have recompiled my kernel and 
sysinstall is using something from my "uname" output to figure out what 
directories it should look in for packages.

Can anyone give me some guidance on how to get sysinstall to know what 
it's version acutally is?

uname output:
