Don't know what could have gone wrong with your checkout, but
cvs update -A XFree86.man
just pulled the file down for me. If you're afraid you might be missing
something else, you could "cvs update -A" at the top, then "make Everything",
and "make install", or else
make build USE_XF86_4=YES UPDATE=yes
which is almost the same thing, except that it also rebuilds and
reinstalls in "contrib" and "local".
