Usually system calls would not actually depend on the
compiler. They are rather implemented by the C library.
Hence, when your program calls printf(), that enters the
C library which eventually will perform a write system call.
(In fact, you may even have a system without an operating
system, in which case you wouldn't get any system call at
all: printf() would call into the library which would
eventually call some hardware-dependent function that would
send stuff to the UART directly.)
The details will depend on the library you use...
