I installed FreeBSD,
but managed to completely fail at getting the man pages installed.

the man pages all magically appear after a buildworld and upgrade, so you
probably just never noticed in the past. i only do minimal installs too, and
a while back, i remember i had the same issue. i had some systems with man
pages, and some systems without. took me a bit to figure out that the ones
that had them, were all updated, and the ones without, were all 'fresh'
