I wrote some up at http://landley.net/aboriginal/FAQ.html#debug_logging  
(scroll down a bit to "Use the command logging wrapper").

Natively on target, there's an /sbin/record-commands script you can  
look at. Just go:

   record-commands your-command-line

And when it's done look at /tmp/record-commands-log.txt to see  
everything that got called, in order, with all their arguments.

The central trick in more/report-recorded-commands.sh is just:

   awk '{print $1}' logfile | sort -u

That gives you a list of the commands used in this log.
