[kaffe] Leak in Garbage Collector

I've merged in support for using the dmalloc memory
managment debugging library with kaffe, and the first
issue I've stumbled upon is a memory leak of about
700k from gc-mem.c.

It appears that the gc does not free the memory it
gets from the OS when kaffe exits. Fixing this should
be easy with another atexit(gc_some_cleanup_function).
Is that O.K. with everybody?
