Info shoudl certainly be clear. The wiki page (https://wiki.debian.org/CrossToolchains#For_jessie.2Ftesting) does say: "The toolchains install on amd64 machines, targeting these architectures: <list>"
Perhaps you were reading something else (there is loads of differing
info of various vintages scattered about).

OK. I have moved the cross-toolchain repo to emdebian.org (from p.d.o)
mostly so that it is available without https (not available by default
in basic chroots).
So now there are amd64 and i386 cross-toolchains (targettting arm64,
armel, armhf, mips, mipsel, powerpc, ppc64el) available in the repo:
deb http://emdebian.org/tools/debian/ jessie main
Installation as described on the above wiki page.
Please tell me if they work/don't work for you.
