No.  I installed it from Ports on a FreeBSD 7.0 and it seemed to run
with no major dramas.  Certainly no long delays between page views
like you're experiencing.

It sounds like you might be having some sort of networking (DNS?)
issue.  To rule that out, one experiment you can try is to browse some
local files, eg. /usr/share/doc/handbook/index.html
