Whuups, might've sent you in a wild goose chase, sorry :/

Was thinking of http://forum.world.st/DemoMode-should-not-change-Fonts-only-sizes-td2538706.html#a2552491 , which I interpreted as linking to a description of how he builds the font source.
Clearly that only includes the end result ready for import.

Anyways, as can be seen from the AAFonts.zip, you basically need a bmp with the font glyphs, as well as a text file containing offsets for each character.
You could achieve that through printscreen and manual creation of offsets txt, or using a more automated tool similar to f.ex. 
http://www.angelcode.com/products/bmfont/ .

CC'ing Juan in case he has time to comment on what his process is specifically.

About as much space as the bmp's, ie depends on what sizes you want to include.
