I hope you are aware that cross compiled packages are definitely not
wanted on backports.org, we have a buildd infrastructure for that.

That might be too little, especially since you would need to install
the libraries in the crossbuild environment to be picked up. dpkg-cross
is a tool that helps with that, but then again, this is not something
that is wanted on backports.org and through that this is the wrong list
"most users choose convenience over security, and that's reflected in the
choice of the current default"
