FWIW, it's part of PC-DOS 7, 2000 (7.01) and 7.1.
7.1 is a free download from IBM as part of the ServerGuide Scripting

I've blogged about how to assemble your own copy, and point to some
VirtualBox pre-installed disk images.

Oh my yes! I was a regular user of LIST in my OS/2 days. I had
forgotten all about it!
