Yes: http://www.llvm.org/docs/CMake.html#cross

The main difference is that you use a configuration file instead of
passing arguments on the command line. Please note that the
configuration file is for a toolset, not for a project (i.e. you don't
need to create one every time you want to cross-compile a new project
from Debian to Windows with MinGW.)
