11th basic class to be loaded... perhaps there's something going funny
in the JIT?  I've no idea what the status of Kaffe on Alpha is
(frankly, I'm surprised it got as far as it did :)...

The specific error you're seeing is that the GC system finds a page of 
objects on its free list, but when it looks, the page claims to have
no actual free objects.  This is an internal consistency check, and
usually indicates that something is trashing the gc block header (with 
a zero in the right spot).

Good.  You don't have a stale installation of Kaffe lying around that
might be getting in the way?

You can check where the classes are actually being loaded from by
running a debugging build of Kaffe like:
	'kaffe -vmdebug INITCLASSPATH asdf'
That'll print full paths to various .jar files Kaffe is using.
