From the README:

Q: X takes a long time to start (possibly several minutes). What can
I do?

A: Most of the startx delay problems we have found are caused by incorrect
data in video BIOSes about what display devices are possibly connected
or what i2c port should be used for detection. You can work around
these problems with the XF86Config option "IgnoreDisplayDevices"
(please see the description in (app-d) APPENDIX D: XF86CONFIG OPTIONS).

slow starting X
I had a similar situation. I was boggled about the solution and had nearly given up but then I found what I thought might be solutio and sure enough, it was. If you add the option

Option "NvAGP" "0"

to your XF86Config it should work. It worked for me. I had tried everything. Including

Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, TV"

that one did not work for me. The "NvAGP" worked great. Try it. If it works for you then great!
