Not having ever run it from inetd, I can't answer to that, but how would you
really know if it was slow?
I guarantee that exim slows down when you start it unconnected to a network and
it needs to do dns lookups. In fact, if you can time the delay to multiples of
30 seconds I'd guarantee that's your problem (because typically that's what it
takes DNS to time-out). What I can't guarantee is that your configuration is
such that DNS lookups are required.
