I can't be positive, but I'm as close as you can get:

Set your DNS servers in /etc/resolv.conf -- Most of these programs
(netstat & apache in aprticular) do DNS lookups when they run. If they
have to wait for a lookup to return/stall, they'll appear "slow."

Netstat command takes so long to complete that I never let it finish.  What is going on?  It is not isolated to these two programs. It took over 9 seconds to start Apache. In a nutshell. Every thing is slow. Another example. Logging in.
