Closest thing I can think of is the SourceForge compile farm.
It doesn't cover every plaftorm though.
I think it's actually quite tricky to setup a full cross-compile
environment. You need to have all shared libraries that you need
available on your build host and there are a lot of things that
assume that build-host == target-arch.
I know that Andy and Dave ended up compiling most of the Linux/VAX
root filesystem natively rather than try to cross compile them
