Cross-toolchains come from emdebian.org. 

with details of apt sources line here:

armel has recently been added.
( http://www.emdebian.org/toolchains/search.php?arch=arm&distro=unstable&package=armel )

so if you put 
deb http://www.emdebian.org/debian/ unstable main
in your sources.list then you should be able to apt-get  gcc-4.2-arm-linux-gnueabi

it's called emchain, and no it won't work with arches that are not in debian yet
(because it uses pre-built glibc, etc for target arch from debian)
