When I went for FreeBSD, I chose the minimal distribution and as a result
do not have man pages. I would like to install them but when I specify an
fpt server (via sysinstall) I get:

Unable to transfer the manpages distribution from

This is 6.2-RELEASE-p6 #4. I changed the name into any in sysinstall
options because otherwise it would complain that there is no such
distribution on the server.

What should I do to have the man pages installed?
