Ok I think I may have found it, all roles and capabilities appear to be
stored in an option called (dbprefix)_user_roles in an array format like:

array (
        'rolename' => array (
                'name' => 'rolename',
                'capabilities' => array()

Now it the a better method, or should I just
global $wpdb;
$roles = get_option($wpdb->prefix . 'user_roles');
and then loop though each role and get it's capability array than merge.
