unfortunately I don't know how small it can get. I have succesfully run  
kaffe on linux 2.0 for powerpc.
You can disable the build of many native libraries, for example the QT or  
the GTK peer if you don't need them. To slim down the class library though  
I think you need to build a profile yourself. If you don't need graphic  
and multimedia stuff I think you may be able to easily cut the jar to  
about the half size, but I haven't attepted to fiddle with profiles since  
a long time and some things changed. There should be a FAQ/How to and I  
hope Mr. Topic can explain you more details.
