I build all my arches on x86_64 with crosstool. My current tool chain
for x86 and ia64 is derived from gcc-3.4.1-glibc-2.3.2.  For powerpc
I'm using  gcc-3.4.2-glibc-2.3.3. It doesn't require significant effort
after downloading Dan Kegel's crosstool source and build tools at:
. Select the tool chain gcc revision and
binutil revision in Dan's arch specific script file and build. Then one
only has to add the installed compiler path to your shell environment path.
For example ia64 for me is 
After that 
	make ARCH=ia64 CROSS_COMPILE=ia64-unknown-linux-gnu- whatever
should work just fine.

I'm not certain whether this is all the information you require:
