Comment (by sysrqb):

 Okay. So, [https://searchfox.org/mozilla-
 central/source/build/docs/locales.rst there's a doc for this].
 Specifically, the mozilla build system clones [https://hg.mozilla.org
 /l10n-central l10n-central] and creates the localization package from
 there. I haven't look at the logic used for this, yet.

 We'll want to clone l10n-central separately, and add the location into
 ac_add_options --with-l10n-base=/make/this/a/absolute/path

 The specific locale is repackaged using:

       ./mach build installers-$AB_CD

 The doc says:
 You should find a re-packaged build at ``OBJDIR/dist/``, and a
 runnable binary in ``OBJDIR/dist/l10n-stage/``.

 Running the `installers-` build target (by default):
 The ``installers`` target runs quite a few things for you, including
 the repository for the requested locale from
 https://hg.mozilla.org/l10n-central/. It will clone them into

 Multilocale packages are created using:
       export MOZ_CHROME_MULTILOCALE="de it zh-TW"
          ./mach build chrome-$AB_CD

       AB_CD=multi ./mach package
