In fact I filed a bug today which was related. Notice how I didn't use cdecl in the program but another user tried to compile and had problems with cdecl also.

https://gitlab.com/freepascal.org/fpc/source/-/issues/40342 <https://gitlab.com/freepascal.org/fpc/source/-/issues/40342#note_1462402401>

Basically this program:

{$mode objfpc}

program test;

function printf(format: PChar): Integer; external; cdecl; varargs;
