What you ask for is not feasible to provide in an e-mail.  There are
as many commands as there are programs available to run on
FreeBSD-5.2, which is at least of the order of tens of thousands.
Then there are a huge number of command line switches and options to
modify the behaviour of those.  You can find everything on your system
that might be run as a command by:

    # find -H  / -type f -perm +0111 -print

But you'll have to go through that list carefully and eliminate
various shared-objects and shared libraries which aren't actually
possible to run stand-alone.

If you mean just what is part of the base system, then:

    # find -H /bin /sbin /boot /usr/bin /usr/sbin /usr/libexec \
        -type f -perm +0111 -print=20

You'll probably need to add a few more directories to that list to
get everything.
