According to Mathematica's help:

The generalized eigenvalues of m with respect to a are those lambda for
which m.v == lambda a.v.

Isn't this the exact same equation as you have listed? Did you mean you
were interested in the eigenvalue problem

x . A == lambda x . B

instead of what you wrote? If so, can't you just use
Eigenvalues[Transpose /@ {A, B}]?
