Are you using Gnome-2.x? I have this issue on one of my boxes that I
migrated from Gnome-1.4 to Gnome-2.x around the same time XFree86 was
also portupgraded.

In fact, my login delays are closer to 1.5 minutes on this box - with a
long pause between running startx to the point where the Gnome-2.x
splash thingy appears.

Just so you know that you're not the only one.
