Now here's a interesting question I've been pondering but haven't quite been able to solve...how is the first compiler for a platform made (e.g. new OS, processor, etc)?

It's usually just a port of an existing compiler to the new system. It's possible to compile code on one machine for another, you know. That's called cross-compiling.
