I am interested in learning how the D compiler was developed (tools, lex/parse,
ast, backend, where does gcc fit in, why/what is the gcc front end, etc).

Any documentation on that? Thanks.

Not really. If you download the dmd compiler, it comes with the source to the front end and you can see how it's built. The back end used is the one from the Digital Mars C/C++ compiler.
