I need some shell script help for dependency checking.

What I'm looking to do is make a list of files that have "not found" dependencies.

For ex:
cd /usr/bin
ldd * | grep "not found"

which gives me something like this:
Quote: => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found
but the above doesn't give the file name of the actual binary that has dependencies that aren't found. I'm looking for a shell command/script that will (also) give the file name of the files that have un-found dependencies. (somehow pipe it into ls, or a loop of some sort? ).

This should be an easy question for someone who knows what they're doing. I feel like a dunce for not being able to figure it out. (I tried a few things and messed up the ldd script and had to replace it. After that; I decided, instead of causing more damage, I would simply ask). Thanks beforehand.

This would already give you better results, but there are more complete solutions out there:
for FILE in $(find /usr/bin -type f)
  NOTFOUND=$(ldd $FILE | grep "not found")
  if [ -n "$NOTFOUND" ]; then
    echo -e "$FILE\n$NOTFOUND"
