The examples section in the webcamd(8) man page seems a bit short:
   With the USB device connected, determine the [ugen]<unit>.<addr> values
     using usbconfig(8):

           ugen7.2: <product 0x0991 vendor 0x046d> at usbus7, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON

Perhaps an example of the actual webcamd command would improve things?
And, the output from 'webcamd -h' doesn't correspond 100% to the man page:
root at kg-v2# webcamd -h
usage: webcamd -d [ugen]<unit>.<addr> -i 0 -v -1 -B
	-d <USB device>
	-i <interface number>
	-v <video device number>
	-B Run in background
	-f <firmware path> [/boot/modules]
	-r Do not set realtime priority
	-H Register device by HAL daemon
	-h Print help

Perhaps '-1' should just be '1'?
