Thanks for your helpful response.

Just for completeness, I thought I'd post to say that my problem actually turned out to be
a conflict between the OS and the hypervisor running the VPS it's hosted on, and nothing to
do with Apache.

'dmesg' revealed lots of time-outs during I/O, which fit with what I was seeing - very slow
loads on first request, followed by relatively rapid performance on subsequent requests (when
the static content was presumably cached at some level).
