Open the log-file, search for "undefined" and at least you'll get a  
line-number. If you then search for the matching parentheses the  
warning is in, you'll find the file (warning faked example):

(chapter2.tex [4] [5]
Warning: undefined reference `fig:blah' on line 54
[6] [7])


Yes, an automated way to find these would be nice. Alpha does it, no  
doubt, and I guess it can be scripted. But this is where you can find  
the information.
