The CMake makefile generators since 2.8.5 I believe. For the Ninja
generator, it has just been merged, and will be part of CMAke 2.8.9 released
in a few weeks.

Typically it won't be in the CMakeLists.txt, but set on the command line:
cmake $srcdir -DCMAKE_EXPORT_COMPILE_COMMANDS=ON
cmake $srcdir -DCMAKE_EXPORT_COMPILE_COMMANDS=ON -G Ninja
to use the Ninja generator

I don't know this one, but indeed it probably just depends on someone caring
enough to implement and debug it and make sure the unit test passes (the
unit test for the generation of the file does not currently work on Windows
with the Ninja generator - that will also take someone debugging it on a
Windows machine to find out why)
