There is a CentOS mail list...

try adding to the bottom of /etc/ldap.conf

timelimit 30
bind_timelimit 30
bind_policy soft
nss_initgroups_ignoreusers root,ldap,named,avahi,haldaemon,dbus

which would speed up starting of some services but I'm not sure that is
your problem because eventually, each of those services gives up and
starts (or doesn't) and moves on.
