You can install Exuberant Ctags and let it tag declarations for you, too
(use the --<LANG>-kinds= option).  I think cscope can parse declarations
as well; git Automake provides a 'make cscope' rule.

I don't think either of those distinguish between functions that you
also define and those that you don't define, but why should you declare
functions from third parties?

For external stuff the above ctags provides a handy
  ctags -R /usr/include /opt/package1/include ...
