No portable way, that is. If you want to call, say, a function written
in Gnu Pascal, then Gnu C probably has a facility to do so; if you want
to call a function written in MicroSoft Visual Basic from MSVC, this may
well be possible; but in all such cases, the way to do so is necessarily
specific to that particular compiler, and you need to read its
documentation, or ask in a newsgroup for that compiler, to find out how.

Note that C++ is a special case: you explicitly _can_ call C functions
from C++ programs, but this is handled by the C++ Standard, not by C, so
ask about this feature in comp.lang.c++.
