I think No.
If you read the FAQ's @ gnu.org about GPL licence you will understand that
the key question is "can you program run independanly"
If yes - then you don't need to be GPL too. Actually your java program will run
with every JVM so it's legal to be licensed ith other than GPL license.

But if you want to distribute your program together with Kaffe you must
include the sources of kaffe or at least link to the place where they can be found, 
the kaffe license and your modifications to kaffe sources (If you made any).

  I've noticed that Kaffe is GPL-ed, so i wondered how that applys on
  programs that use Kaffe's VM, do they need to be under GPL or similar
