I am having problems with emacs taking a very long time to start (for
environment info see end of post). When I start it in a terminal
windows (nox) I get the "F1 *scratch*" screen right away but it takes
me about 70 seconds before the screen allows me to enter anything.

However, when I start emacs with the "-q" option it starts instantly
(under one second). So, it appears that the slowness is due to
some .el or .elc file that emacs is loading when it starts.

I looked around and removed all the the files I thought might be
causing the problem but to no avail. So, what I would like to see is
exactly _which_ files emacs is loading when it starts.

How can I generate such a list?

Environment information:
Debian Etch, GNU Emacs 21.4.1

C-h v features RET
will give a list of the features loaded.
This is a .el or .elc, if it called  'provide.

M-: (feature-file 'foo) RET
will tell you which file provided feature "foo"

It will be in one of the directories listed in
C-h v load-path RET
but I can't find an easy way to determine which one it is.
