I do not know of a LaTeX package to do this, but ConTeXt[1] has
something that does this exactly.

\starttext
\startcombination[2*3]
{\externalfigure[fig1][width=5cm]}
{Caption 1}
{\externalfigure[fig2][width=5cm]}
{Caption 2}
{\externalfigure[fig3][width=5cm]}
{Caption 3}
{\externalfigure[fig4][width=5cm]}
{Caption 4}
{\externalfigure[fig5][width=5cm]}
{Caption 5}
{\externalfigure[fig6][width=5cm]}
{Caption 6}
\stopcombination
\stoptext

You can configure the distance between cells, and the alignment of
captions.

So what you can do is use context to generate these 100 pages of
figures, and if you need to include them in a latex document, use the
pdfpages package.
