how do you generate the site? 

If you use the CLI, you can use the "broken-links" option.
This will generate a report-file, where the broken-links are
reported as text(current Cocoon-version as XML too). The
file will generated in every case, so you should test if its
empty or not.

If you can use the ant-task (like Joerg wrote), you can do
it all. Make a target for generating and a target for
publishing(with a check if there was no broken link).

But the ANT-task and more reporting options are introduced
later to Cocoon (up 2.1.3 ??)
