The other way around, creating an i386 image on an amd64 system is
fairly easy. You can use schroot to create an i386 chroot which you can
use to build d-i.

Since no one has answered yet, I bet no one has a simple answer.  You
can look at the emdebian-tools package that should help you in creating
a cross-compiling environment for Debian packages.

I would be happy to know if it could be used to cross-compile d-i,
please tell us if you find anything; but you will have to dig by
