[tex-live] Adding texdoc only adds link

In order to get a minimal TeX installation I started with
BasicTeX instead of MacTeX and added packages when I needed them.

Today I realized that there was no texdoc.
No Problem, just start the TeX Live Utility and install it.

Well, TLU did install 
but that is only a link to
which isn't installed.
(The whole folder is missing.)

On this (full install) machine I get 3 doc files for texdoc universal-darwin,
on the basic install machine I get none.

How do I get the missing files?
(Copying the files from the other machine is considered cheating:-)
