Yes, it's possible. Debian provides extension packages, and ALTLinux
http://www.altlinux.com/ provides extension RPMs. I found this page on
Debian packaging helpful
http://glandium.org/debian/packages/mozilla-firefox/New_scheme_for_extensions/current.html while ALTLinux uses macros available in their firefox-devel package under /etc/rpm/macros.d/

It won't happen until people come forward and offer to do it. Do you
have some free time?
