I found this link describing what to do to get ri working on freebsd.
The method I used was the similar to that described above but the rdoc
command I used was simpler and it seemed to work.
You have to find your version of the ruby-1.9.3-484.tar.bz2 file in
/usr/ports/distfiles and untar the ruby file and run the rdoc command on
the untarred ruby directory. So as root do the following:
# tar jxvf /usr/ports/distfiles/ruby-1.9.3-p484.tar.bz2
# rdoc -R ruby-1.9.3-p484/
ri works on my freebsd 10 stable system seems to work after I did that. By
the way you can see the options for rdoc by doing:
Hope that helps. Don't know why the ruby port doesn't take that into
account. I'm no expert when it comes to ports though.
