It's actually part of the Makefile, but close enough. For Gilles' convenience, this is the relevant snippet (the first half is for OSX, the second half for Linux):
Code:
ifeq ($(shell uname),Darwin) rm -f sdcard.dmg hdiutil create sdcard -megabytes 64 -fs MS-DOS -volname x49gp else /sbin/mkdosfs -v -C -S 512 -f 2 -F 16 -r 512 -R 2 -n "x49gp"$@ 65536 endif
The part about how to get files onto this SD card used to be in the readme up to the patch series last year, but I removed it because there's a more convenient way now (based on a QEMU part constructing a FAT filesystem on the fly from a regular directory). It wasn't really obscure though, just the standard mount and umount commands. Their manual pages and/or a mounting tutorial should be more than enough to shunt files between the SD image and the computer around it.

Gilles, if you're stuck on Windows, try WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux), that ought to support these commands. Anything graphical is supposedly very tricky, so perhaps stay away from trying to run x49gp on it, but these SD-related commands are just simple command-line tools, i.e. exactly what WSL was built for.
