Boot up the system and log in as root.  Then run sysinstall.  Select
Custom -> Distributions -> Custom.  From there you can select the
man distribution.  Then OK your way back until sysinstall actually
installs the man pages.

I expect you selected a "minimal" install when you installed, which
doesn't include man pages.
