Most times that an application is slow to startup is due to it trying to
reverse-resolve itself.  Adding a forward-lookup entry won't help much in
this case.  The easy solution is to make sure you have the IP/name in
/etc/hosts, though you could always put in a reverse lookup DNS records as
well.  I've never run into a problem with apache ever looking for a
reverse-lookup myself, so I hope this helps.
