Since Kaffe's garbage collector does no copying, you might not need to
disable is.  Otherwise, you can do:
     kaffe -verbosegc -ms 64M -ms 64M
which shouldn't GC if your program allocates less than 64M.  If you
configured kaffe with --enable-debug, you can use
     kaffe -vmdebug NOGC
rather than calculate the maximum heap size.
