I think there is something very wrong, in that case (like bad DNS 
lookups).  I've never experienced startup-times anywhere near that long 
with the default config.  You could try strace'ing apache to see what is 
using all the time.

Also note that you could just start apache in the background and let the 
rest of your startup continue.

Only in as much as they will increase the time needed to read the file 
from disk.  (In other words: not very much.)
