Should have been installed with the system.  I've got it here and didn't
do anything special.

Allow weekly maintenance to run, it'll rebuild the locate database for
you.  This is the fragment from /etc/weekly that does it:

echo "Rebuilding locate database:"
touch ${locdb}; chown nobody ${locdb}; chmod 644 ${locdb}
echo /usr/libexec/locate.updatedb | nice -5 su -m nobody 2>&1 |\
        fgrep -v 'Permission denied'
chmod 444 ${locdb}

I suppose you could run this yourself if you needed to.
