You don't. You use normal Debian build systems: 
dpkg-buildpackage -aarmel.

Then, you pass the armel packages through emdebian-grip -
emdebian-crush contains a helper
(/usr/share/emdebian-crush/emsource.sh) to wrap those stages into one.

... which simply became impossible to maintain.

emdebian-tools would have gone away before Squeeze anyway. There is
still little chance of any packages for Crush in line with Squeeze. 

Please read why:

Less packages to install. You can use your chroot or you can switch to
using standard Debian build methods by using pdebuild-cross.

You don't need emdebian-tools, you just need to handle the cross
dependencies (apt-cross will do for now but will disappear in due
course) and then build packages as normal.

emdebian-grip is then used to remove the unwanted files - instead of
having to make so many changes to the packages before the build.
