This prompted me to run "svn up" on FreeBSD ports tree.

But I found no devel/cross-binutils, you had my hopes up.

There is a cross/cross-binutils in (NetBSD) pkgsrc.

DESCR shows

The cross-binutils pkg is used only by the other `cross' pkgs.  The
binutils provides various binary manipulation utilities as well as the GNU
linker.  (The assembler is bundled with each individual cross pkg.)
