The cross compiler set can be built (in a different variant from
yours) from gcc and friends package sources. Emdebian.org has been
providing this sets for a while.
A similar ITP was filled (in case you were not aware) a while back,
#553685, #553687, #553684, #553683, #553682, #553679.
In order to keep GPL compliant, dak needs to be taught (if not
already) how to keep -source build-deps arround for autobuilders.
If you are interested on this topic I highly recommend you to join
firstname.lastname@example.org, have a look to CategoryEmdebian at wiki.d.o and
This group (debian-embedded) is working towards a nicer integration
of tools within a framework easing embedded development.
Exotic cross compilers are planned to be kept out of debian, most
likely debian-ports.org or emdebian.org
