Handbook out-of-date after csup/buildworld

I have a machine which was initially installed from CD (including the source 
tree). It's subsequently been updated with cvsup, and latterly csup, and the 
make buildworld/make kernel/make installworld sequence described in the 

I noticed last week that the handbook on this machine ``covers the 
installation and day to day use of FreeBSD 4.10-RELEASE and FreeBSD 
5.3-RELEASE'' (it's actually running 6.3-RELEASE).

Should the handbook be updated as part of building and installing world?

If so, what am I likely to have done wrong?

If not, what do I need to do to get the handbook (and presumably the other 
documentation) updated?

(I'm assuming, possibly wrongly, that there's a method of updating the 
installed documentation without grabbing the doc-all sup collection, 
installing the documentation tools package from the ports tree, and building 
it all from scratch).
