Though the port is named security/gnupg1 (or security/gnupg for gnupg
v2), the actual command to use is gpg. So please try man gpg. I am using
gnupg1 and the documentation is installed with the port. I assume the
same is true for gnupg v2.

$ whereis gpg

gpg: /usr/local/bin/gpg /usr/local/man/man1/gpg.1.gz
