If the long start time only happens during the very first launch of Eclipse, then you may be seeing the p2 metadata detection and generation process.
If you just unzip Eclipse Platform, plus a few other plugins (for example, EMF, WTP, or your own plugins) and the language packs, p2 has to detect and check all the plugins to make sure all the prerequisites are fulfilled, and then generate the p2 metadata. This is basically equivalent to the "install process" of some other commercial software products, and this takes time!
I'm not a release engineer, but I know p2 has some tools to help you generate the p2 metadata to represent the bundles in your application, and also to represent your application as a whole within p2 metadata. That should help to speed up the detection process. See http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/Getting_Started_for_Releng for more details. If that still does not help shorten the start time, maybe you should open a Eclipse Bugzilla report, describe your scenario and see if the p2 team can give you some advices.
