There is a slightly less painful way, but still requiring a little work.

The script I am running every night is in the build directory of the master 
branch.  It is called make-l10n.  With a few relatively simple fixes that 
script could build a single language:

1) Replace the line:
    GITIT="git clone 
    GITIT="git clone git://"

2) There is a list of languages near the top of the script.  Count, starting 
from zero, until you find your language.

3) Delete from "make html-en-US" through "ftp -pi 

4) Replace the line "for NUM in {0..39] ..." with
      for NUM in $LANGNUM ; do

where xx is the number you found in 1).  If you wanted to do several 
languages, you could put several numbers between the quotes, separated by 

5) Delete all from "if ..." through "fi ..."

This script actualy does a git clone, switches branches, saves files off in 
a safe place, switches branches again, merges the po's and finally does the 
build, so it isn't exactly fast.
