More precisely, functions that
- are only declared
- do not have an ACSL specification
- are not called or referenced
are completely removed at parsing time.

Functions only declared but that have an ACSL specification are
retained, whether they are called/referenced. However, they do not
appear as a GFun in the list of globals, as this constructor is only
used for defined functions: GFun takes a fundec as argument. Instead,
declared functions appear as GVarDecl. Make sure to check that the
type of the varinfo is a function type, as non-function variables only
declared also appear GVarDecl.

Hope this helps,
