This could be done like this:
Compiling stubs, then compiling mono libs, then compare both binaries using

In fact Mono's own extraction script was used to generate about a hundred of
enums in libraries (grep library sources for "libgen"). Both extraction
script and generated stubs were available more than a month ago.
If reusing documentation comments is legal, this would be very nice - there
are lots of documentation in XML library file (there are posts on OCL list
confirming that it's legal).
