If you're on UNIX, I have just updated one of my MIF scripts,
"mifreport", to help you do this. If the script is run with the
options -sb on a single book file, checks are made for X-ref
source files that are not part of the book file. The external
files are listed and which files they were found in, but you have
to find the corresponding X-refs yourself. You can, for instance,
search a MIF file for the filename and read the surrounding text
for context.

The new mifreport script can be downloaded from the web page

I will continue to update the scripts according to wishes or
ideas published on these mailing lists.
