I couldn't build with --with-lang and source_config. Maybe the reason is
that I didn't do a clean build after the latest updates (I did a
autoconf and configure though).

OK, sorry, I misunderstood your "this change is incorrect". So I will
try a new clean build with "--with-lang" from head. Eike is right with
his reservation, but I don't think that we need a general patch here,
your "hack" should be enough. In the worst case (we finally move l10n
somewhere else) we would need a one-shot fix. As I wrote, source_config
should be considered as doomed (and so the need to specify repositories

Besides that: I don't see a reason to change the structure of "main" and
"extras" anytime soon.
