[Slackbuilds-users] i18n-xx SlackBuild for mozilla-firefox: What? Where? How?

I want to write a firefox-i18n-fr.SlackBuild to localize Firefox. The
Firefox people somehow remind me of the GNOME people... when you hunt
around for information as to what goes where and how, you can't help
getting the impression that you have to be a member to some secret
congregation to get involved in the arcanes of the build and install
So far, I had two solutions to localize Firefox, none of them really
satisfying. 1) Download the french localized .tar.gz file from Firefox
(and also Thunderbird) and build a package with the original Slackware
SlackBuild script. 2) As a user, download an fr.xpi file from
mozilla.org (which I find myself googling for for about half an hour
everytime), then install it. The disadvantage of this solution: I can
only localize Firefox... locally, if I may say so. Every user (and there
are a lot) would have to go through the chore, so this is not really viable.
So: is there a way to install a (french, ...) language pack for Firefox
(and Thunderbird, ...) somehow? If so, 1) What are the files? 2) Where
are the files? 3) Where do they go? I googled for the solution, surfed
quite a lot on the Mozilla Foundation website, and concluded all this is
an awful mess.
