I'm afraid there isn't an easy method. There might be "obvious" errors like 
fully duplicated GCP records, or 2 GCPs that would have same pixel,line 
coordinates but different X,Y georeferenced coordinates (or the reverse). But 
there might be far less obvious errors leading to this mathematic anomaly.

I've just added in GDAL trunk an improvement regarding reporting of the 
"obvious" errors:
