Thanks for tips.
Without "quiet" I still get no output at all for 2min 35sec, then normal
rush of messages. Bootchart (very nice!) shows that the boot process
itself is running normally, once it starts, about 45sec overall. The
initial wait isn't shown on the chart. Once running, everything seems to
be working. The entries in grub.conf are identical, except for version
numbers.

So what causes the wait?
