Very tricky: printing a copy of the reference to a separate file is
easy: just \input the .bbl file (assuming you're using bibtex) in a
minimal latex file. However, to keep the correct references within the
body itself, you need to have the references in there somewhere for
the \cite commands.

With the separate files (body + references and references alone), you
can count the number of pages (pdfinfo), and then script something
with pdftk. You might be better off just splitting the final version,
but I don't know the details for wanting this in the first place.
Hope this helps you,
