Absolutely :-*
I've tried a few days ago to have a crosscompiler on Linux for i386 and 
x86_64: I failed to compile for i386, Lazarus installed as x86_64 
native. Something was still missing.

Same for me. It would be delightful to have a script, or maybe better a 
package installer (debian .deb or rpm) for each supported 
cross-compilation architecture.

The current wiki pages do not give enough information about the 
installation process of another target into a functional Lazarus 
installation. On another hand I think it is more a task for the FPC 
development team than Lazarus one.  But still, as they work hand in hand 
(I guess), I think it is a Lazarus task as well. Although I'm not a 
submarine ( 8-) ) developer I can give some of my time to help in this
