CTAN has a new package: alphabib
alphabib is a little Bash script allowing addition of alphabetical headers into BibTEX bibliographies. This may be usefull with large bibliographies so that to find entries quickly. It takes a bibliography file produced by BibTEX (file with extension '.bbl') as an input, and creates a new file with incorporated alphabetical headers. Those headers break the bibliography into bibliographic entry sets having the same initial. Each set is entitled with a header consisting of the initial letter corresponding to entries composing it. Note that this script is mostly intended for use with "alpha-like" BibTEX styles (e.g. alpha.bst).

alphabib – Add alphabetical headers into citations
