A hint came from this list, so I checked via locate the existence of multiple 
ftpd and
ftpd.8[.gz] - and yes, I found several. I circumvent the problem by applying to 
man the
option "-M/usr/share/man" which brought up the the correct manpage.

And if it would not be hard ebough, I figured, that deleting port 
security/heimdal didn't
erase the manpage  on the particular machine I tested with :-/
