It is not a hardware issue. Toolchains are built on amd64 - there is no
point building a toolchain on armel to build for armel (or arm), that
would be a native compiler.

A toolchain autobuilder is a software issue and has various
implications for how autobuilders normally work in that a toolchain is
not one single package, it cannot be built with the normal build
commands and has various inter-dependencies within the various packages
that determine which packages are built and in which sequence. Current
autobuilders in Debian cannot cope with any of those requirements.
