In the interim of moving ACPI tables out of
seabios, developers should get the config from
QEMU tree to keep things in sync.

To build, one should be able to run "make" in the main directory. The
resulting file "out/bios.bin" contains the processed bios image.

The "seabios" word in the commands refers to whichever directory the
seabios project has been cloned / checked out / extracted, doesn't it?
For a second the cp command looked as if I should be able to find a
seabios subdir (beside the roms subdir) in qemu. What about
+ cp roms/config.seabios $SEABIOS_DIR/.config
+ make -C $SEABIOS_DIR olddefconfig
(BTW, good to know! :))
