My experience is that this almost always indicates that
a SIGSEGV, SIGBUS or something similar happened during
garbage collection. 

If you have gdb around, it would be cool if you could
try to get a stacktrace and post it:

  - Set the environment variables contained in 
    /root/kaffe/BUILD_ENVIRONMENT, which will
    enable you to run (and debug) an uninstalled
    copy of kaffe
  - afterwards, you should be able to debug the
    uninstalled kaffe with something like
    './libtool --mode=execute gdb $JAVA'
    (also in /root/kaffe)

  - at the gdb prompt, set the command line args to
    'at.dms.kjc.Main' and start kaffe

If you don't have gdb around, we'll have to try something
