List of programs expected with Linux?


I'm trying to develop an ultra-small distro for web serving, etc. I have something that will boot and access the drives, and I'd like to find a list of programs and libraries that are expected to be on a Linux/POSIX system (preferably one that tells where to obtain them) so I can make a usable distro. In addition, any advice about how to go about creating a distro would welcome.

I have a small distro I can examine. I was just wondering if there was some POSIX standard or something on what programs are supposed to be on a POSIX-like system. By the way, is there a sysV style replacement for busybox init?
