The point is to get binary packages. *I* don't care how they are made.

I don't know what T2 does in detail, but it sounded like pure 
crosscompile, w/o any emulators. May be worth investigating.
The have a special flag in their package description that indicates if a 
package can be crosscompiled.

I haven't found any real documentation on the topic of cross builds, but 
some information is here:
