Do it yourself:

for f in {,/usr}/{,s}bin/[0-9a-zA-Z]*;do n=${f##*/};whatis $n|
grep -e "^$n (1)" -e "^$n (8)";done|sort|uniq|less

This lists all commands found in /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin on your 
machine. It may not be perfect and the builtin shell commands are not 

Beware: Don't redirect it to your printer - that's several thousand lines 
if you have many packages installed.

Thanks Nils

working out
exactly what it was doing anyway. Shoved the output into a file for 
future reference.
