If you're using a crossover cable (you can also use a straight-through cable to connect to a host's ethernet port if it supports Auto-MDIX) and are now just looking for your Pi's link-local address, you can use a network protocol analyzer or traffic inspection tool (i.e
tcpdump) and look for DNS traffic.
Note: This works best your other network adapters temporarily disabled to filter normal LAN/Internet traffic.
$ sudo tcpdump ... 18:33:21.857183 IP 169.254.59.204.mdns > 22.214.171.124.mdns: 0*- [0q] 4/0/0 (Cache flush) PTR raspberrypi.local., (Cache flush) A 169.254.59.204, (Cache flush) PTR raspberrypi.local., (Cache flush) AAAA 0000::0000:0000:0000:0000 (...)
The link-local address of this Pi is 169.254.59.204.
