Bash tells me that there are 1110 executables in my path.  You don't want
that, I think. 

But something that'll come close to what you want is this... 

cd /usr/bin; man -k * 

That's the majority of the user programs on your system... and over 600 on
mine, so it takes awhile.  But there are other binary directories that may
or may not be in your path, so you won't get everything that way.
