Crossbuild for aarch64

I have a Dragonboard 410c I was hoping to use for some ROS experiments, alas there are no aarch64 packages built. The board has Ubuntu 15.04 installed (Linaro port). I've been looking around for instructions on cross-building source packages in Debian/Ubuntu and have found a few docs, but they seem to be oriented towards one-off builds rather than an entire project full of packages. Also, ROS uses its own build system, and I'm not sure how to integrate the cross-build tools with that (I'm very much not a software developer). Does anyone have any tips on how I might proceed? Or would I just be better off trying to find something else to do with the Dragonboard and pick a different platform for ROS?

Just a comment on "ROS uses its own build system": catkin is essentially 'just' CMake, so whatever method you can find for CMake should/will work with catkin.
