[pdftex] reference to remote document

When I read file in arXiv it is possible to get original tex file and create
on its base aux file. May be in other case you need contact with author of
original document. Without aux file you cannot refer to label in other pdf
file. I will try today to refer to page like was written in other email
today. One of paper that I refer is written on tex and does not have any
label at all, however it is good idea to give reader ability to see theorem
that I refer to.

How then I should place a reference in foo.tex to \label{A} at some.tex so
in foo.pdf (or foo.dvi)  this command returned the same value as
\ref{A} in some.tex?

I understand that this is a general latex question rather than
specific pdftex one
