   Well, it depends if your considering them all together:

    basename cat chgrp chmod chown chroot cksum comm cp csplit cut
    date dd df dir dircolors dirname du echo env expand expr factor
    false fmt fold groups head hostid id install join link ln logname
    ls md5sum mkdir mkfifo mknod mv nice nl nohup od paste pathchk
    pinky pr printenv printf ptx pwd readlink rm rmdir sha1sum seq
    shred sleep sort split stat stty sum sync tac tail tee test touch
    tr true tsort tty uname unexpand uniq unlink users vdir wc who
    whoami yes

   Perhaps not.

Don't forget a compiler, debugger, editor, a C library, and a whole
slew of other things.  A compiler is far harder to write than a kernel
by the way.
