Yeap, my guess was right. After removing NO_STAGE, I have man pages
installed correctly.

====> Compressing man pages (compress-man)
===>  Installing for bash-static-4.2.45_1
===>  Checking if shells/bash-static already installed

Installing bash-static-4.2.45_1... done


Do you still think that backward compatibility is a good thing for such
a project like FreeBSD ports? I'd like to spend time doing real porting
instead of dealing with something like that bug.

Many projects which were good from the beginning now are pieces of sheet
because of backward compatibility, firefox jetpack sdk and xul show this
clearly. I don't want to see FreeBSD ports in this list.

Please fill the pr.
