Is your installation an i386 machine?
The toolchains there are currently only for amd64 machines so there is
nothing to install on your machine.
I will try building some, and upload them if they work.
You could also try:
get source, add i386 to build arches, sbuild it:
dget -u https://people.debian.org/~wookey/tools/debian/pool/main/c/cross-gcc-4.9-armel/cross-gcc-4.9-armel_0.9.dsc
sed -i -e 's/Architecture: amd64/Architecture: amd64 i386/' cross-gcc-4.9-armel-0.9/debian/control
sbuild -A -s -d jessie
to just build one yourself.
(you'll need sbuild & devscripts installed, and a jessie i386 chroot:
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends sbuild devscripts
sudo sbuild-createchroot jessie /home/user/jessie http://http.debian.net/debian
I've just done that here and it builds OK. I'll build the other arches
and upload. Feedback on whether they work for you would be welcome.

Right now, use an amd64 machine.
