    There are commercial tools to do so, one i know of is FormsApiMaster.

    You could also convert your forms to XML format using and compare them. However this wouldn't work for 6i and older versions. The FormsAPIMaster like Andreas suggested has a little brother named FormsTool which has the same compare functionality as FormsAPIMaster but lacks the scripting API (which you wouldn't need for plain compare). We are using it as diff/merge tool in conjunction with subversion for some years now and are quite pleased with it ;).

    cheers
