Default BBcode tags used to reference manpages

Carpetsmoker, the idea of simplifying manpage references down to BBcode tags is a godsend:

...however, when attempting to construct one for NetBSD, the resulting URL references FreeBSD manpage instead. Yet something else to file again to be fixed at different time...

No, it works fine, a NetBSD 4.0 manpage is shown, I just used the FreeBSD website because I could not find anything like this on the NetBSD website.

chmod(2)

[EDIT]
Ok, this is not very obvious, for a minute I was confused to because it says "FreeBSD system managers manual", only after examining the FreeBSD version of the manpage was I sure this was in fact the NetBSD version.
I changed the site http://netbsd.gw.com/cgi-bin/man-cgi

Okay, then it was user error. I thought I had specified this correctly five minutes ago, yadda, yadda, yadda...

Now life is wonderful:
