That's a good question.
If no one else has the answer to this, then you can try Doug's Applescripts and download Make a Text List script and run it on your iTunes. Then run it on the aother and you can see which ones are duplicates.
He has other applescripts which you might want to check out too.

Hi, Thanks for your suggestion. However, this is not really what I need. To clarify:
When I copy and paste my large iTunes folder to another external hard drive, I get messages like this:
You can’t copy “No angel” because it has the same name as another item on the destination volume, and that volume doesn’t distinguish between upper- and lowercase letters in filenames.
and after I click OK it stops copying the rest of the folder. This happenned 20 times (for each subsequent duplicate) before I gave up. So what I am looking for is a way to simply replicate the whole folder, or have it merge the duplicate, rather than my having to manually go through them.
Perhaps I have to clean up my iTunes library first, but that would take ages too.
On Windows, the same procedure asked if I want to merge folders, keep both or replace the existing one. I am surprised if Macs do not offer this.
