Some analyzers do this automatically, otherwise a 
'cat logfiles | sort -k4 [-T /somebigdisk/tmp ] > thebiglog' will do. If you
use clf (Common Logfile Format) ofcourse, the -T argument for sort is to
ommit /tmp which can be a too small partition for this big sorting jobs on some machines.

Looking at freshmeat now I see a combination of analog[1] and 'Report Magic'[2] 
which look much pretier then webalizer and are both made debian packages.

For some customers we use Nettracker which is very nice in my opinion but (eurosign).
