For binutils-<triplet>, see also [1] as another potential starting

gcc-<triplet> is harder because the project does not currently permit
cross-architecture dependencies.  (There are multiple reasons for
this, some having to do with tools, other having to do with need for a
coherent policy that would deal, for example, with what happens when
an arch is dropped.)

Thanks for a nice summary,
