I'd recommend creating the benchmarks yourself for the particular use 
cases you have in mind. Be sure to exploit each language's features 
optimally lest you forge the results.

If you're just looking for the bare results of using the *same* 
algorithm (no libraries, not using any fancy language features) of 
various language implementations, you can look at:
