Kaffe could be 50MB when installed but it could be significant smaller!
I prepared small, embedded linux distribution which can fit on 4MB flash
or flash disk. Actually the image I created was 8MB - I put on it
enough place for our server and possible bundles which are going to be
installed eventually.
The only software which fits on these 4M (even less) is:
glibc (which is the biggest - around 2M), binutils, kaffe, some additional
and our server core.

So you can try stripping kaffe binary and kaffe libraries from debug
which they can possible contain (they really do if you have 50M distro;)
You can do that with 'strip' command.
