You might split that assert into two separate ones, so that its
clearer which one is blowing up.  I wouldn't be surprised if size was
zero because of some other failure in the system.  Send me a backtrace 
and I can give you some more hints...

Does 'kaffe -fullversion' work?  That's really basic... :)  

Beyond that, the pre-compiled HelloWorld is pretty hard to beat.  I
guess you could remove the println(), that would avoid some stuff, but
still the bootstrap will pull in lots of Java code (lots of static
initializers get run before main).

Configure with --enable-debug, and use the '-vmdebug' command line
option ('-vmdebug list' for help).  There are also a bunch of gdb
macros in developers/gdbinit.  (Though some are quite stale, and others
are x86-specific).

Hope this helps,
