Those distributions were a mystery to me the first time I installed
FreeBSD and they still are. I've never understood why anyone would want
to lump together significant ports installation with minor base-system
penny-pinching in such an opaque way.
In recent versions of sysinstall the documentation is packaged, so IIWY
I'd just install the appropriate port or package.
$ ls -d /usr/ports/misc/freebsd-doc-*
