We have found other errors related to non-template friend declarations.

struct F {};

struct S {
   friend F::F();
   friend F::~F();

$ llvm/Debug/bin/clang++ -fsyntax-only bug.cc
bug.cc:4:15: error: expected member name or ';' after declaration specifiers
   friend F::F();
   ~~~~~~~~~~~ ^
bug.cc:5:13: error: definition of implicitly declared destructor
   friend F::~F();
bug.cc:1:8: note: previous implicit declaration is here
struct F {};
3 diagnostics generated.


In the first case, it looks as if the constructor name is misinterpreted 
to be part of the name qualifiers (maybe due to class name injection?).
The buggy error diagnostic is still there if the constructor is declared 
explicitly or if a different constructor is used.

In the second case, the friend declaration is misinterpreted as if it 
was defining the implicit constructor. The same buggy error diagnostic 
is obtained if the implicit copy assignment operator is declared friend.

Should we add this example to the bug report just created?
