I uploaded a language pack SlackBuild for firefox. You can use it to
build a package for any supported language:

I run "LANG=nl VERSION=15.0 ./mozilla-firefox-l10n.SlackBuild"  to build
a firefox language pack. The build directory contains a README.1st which
explains how to enable the new language after installing the language pack.

Should not be hard to change this into a seamonkey script.
