Patrick, while you're waiting for someone to improve the output of wget to 
provide the information you want, the --debug output will tell you which page 
generated the reference to the broken link. Look for:

---request begin---
GET /path/to/broken_link.html HTTP/1.0
Referer: http://mysite.com/path/to/source_of_link.html

I don't think it is possible at the moment, but add this feature
shouldn't take much time.

The feature seems interesting but I don't think it is going to be
implemented before the next release.

You can wait until someone is going to implement it, or you can take
advantage of the fact wget is Free software and implement it by yourself
or hire someone to do it for you.
