That isn't the issue - or shouldn't be. G is seriously unlikely to punish someone due to bad links to their site. What is much more likely is to punish a site that links to bad sites.
So it isn't checking who links to you - but who you link to.
To make that al ittle easier ... go get a copy of Xenu Link Slueth. you can export the data - then shorten it to only those that are not on your domain. That should give you a list of links to other sites. then you can review the sites you link to :D
