Check etc/PROBLEMS (e.g. with C-h C-p).  My guess is that you're
hitting the problem quoted below,


*** Emacs startup on GNU/Linux systems (and possibly other systems) is slow.

This can happen if the system is misconfigured and Emacs can't get the
full qualified domain name, FQDN.  You should have your FQDN in the
/etc/hosts file, something like this:       localhost  nuc04.t30.physik.tu-muenchen.de nuc04

The way to set this up may vary on non-GNU systems.
