Actually, I wrote the code below a while back to do that.  It's pretty
rough, errors are only printed with `message', and I seem to have
omitted the name of the offending variable, but I think it vaguely
works so far as it goes.

The messy bit is forcibly loading all the autoloads.  I forget
exactly, but I'm pretty sure I had to suppress errors because not
everything would load successfully.  Not sure if loading in a crazy
order is/was the problem, or if packages are at fault.  Maybe others
have more experience with such forcible loading.

  (let ((result nil))
    (mapatoms (lambda (symbol)
                (dolist (i (get symbol 'custom-loads))
                  (add-to-list 'result i))))

  "Load CUSXREF-NAME, but suppress errors.
