Once again displaying the ignorance of a Linux refugee/FBSD newbie...

When viewing man pages, I often use the search feature:

   /searchstring <enter>

The difference I've noticed between Linux and FBSD is that in Linux, if
the search string is found, the string is highlighted. I find that a very
useful feature. Is there some way to enable this function in FBSD man
