My question is this. Is there any software or online resources that will collect this information? Or do I have to run the "link:www.competitordomain.com" search on google and write in each site that links to the competitors? Does this have to be the hard part?
Hope it helps.

You can however download the Google toolbar, it helps evaluate the websites and presents all the inbound links in one click of the mouse.
You also have to bear in mind that Google will only list the links of those websites that are listed with google. The same applies to other SE's and directories.
A website may have a popularity count of 1000 in total but may only show 200 in google. That means that in order to target these competitors effectively you will have to adopt the same strategy with the other SE's that list the other 800. :)
