Needs-Build means that no builder has come around to build it yet. This
includes reasons like "because non-free's not important, it's only built
when there's nothing else to do" (see mips*) and "there are no non-free
autobuilders for $arch" (see the others).

There you'd want to mail armel@buildd for a nfu drop, if you think it's
buildable on that arch. (nfu indicates that at one point it didn't.)
In general firstname.lastname@example.org sounds like a better contact address
than d-devel@. The page you linked shouldn't be used anymore[*],
instead https://buildd.debian.org/status/package.php?p=crafty also has
the right contact address (albeit it talks about the (web) pages only,
I think that should be fixed).
[*] But I guess it's still linked from several places.
