No, in general dpkg-cross does not require to change the PATH (at least
in principle), but you have to make sure that the CC variable dpkg-cross
automatically defines (usually, "gcc-i386-gnu") is properly passed from
debian/rules to the upstream Makefile.

It has not been fixed yet, as far as I know. Fortunately there is nothing
to compile, because dpkg-genchanges is written in perl. In my system I
just changed it "in place" in /usr/bin.
