This is exactly why I wrote "perfbase" some years ago (see
http://perfbase.tigris.org), a toolkit for experiment managment and
data analysis. I still maintain it and use it on a daily basis
(release 1.2.0 came out this week). It parses benchmark output files
"automatically", stores data in a database and lets you create and run
very elaborate queries on it, generating gnuplots, OpenOffice
spreadsheets, raw text or XML output.
