"arp -a" will list the mappings currently in use.

If you run arpwatch, /var/lib/arpwatch/arp.dat will contain a list.  A
perl or shell script to parse it would be pretty easy.

Of course, this only applies to your local network segment, and I'm
assuming you arn't realy looking for your dhcpd configuration.
