Findutils is a "required" package.  It would not give you the man pages but 
would help you determine whether they are installed.

info might work, until you find the problem.  

info xorg.conf
or the 'apropos' command.

Since you have findutils installed now, run updatedb and then the locate 
command should tell you if those manual pages are installed, but give 
updatedb a few minutes to generate its database.
