This setup is operating system specific.  You'll need to talk to your
OS vendor's support mailing list, web forum, IRC channel, etc.

E.g. on Debian 11:

unicorn:~$ man bash-builtins | head -n1
BASH-BUILTINS(7)       Miscellaneous Information Manual       BASH-BUILTINS(7)

This page is provided by the "bash" package in Debian, but there are
none of your symlinks, e.g. "man alias" does not give me this page.  Again,
all of that stuff is set up (or not set up) by your OS vendor.
