+Summary: mcs/gmcs fails to compile extern method with no pinvoke/icall attributes
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem: mcs/gmcs both fail to compile a method marked
+extern that has no pinvoke/icall attributes. csc gives warning while
+mcs/gmcs gives error.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Try to compile attached file.
+Actual Results:
+$ gmcs Program.cs
+Program.cs(10,27): error CS0626: `MonoEmbed.gimme2()' is marked as an
+external but has no DllImport attribute. Consider adding a DllImport
+attribute to specify the external implementation
+Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings
+Expected Results:
+From csc 2.0:
+C:\cygwin\home\HP_Administrator\com_tester\Program.cs(10,27): warning
+CS0626: Method, operator, or accessor 'MonoEmbed.gimme2()' is marked
+external and has no attributes on it. Consider adding a DllImport attribute
+to specify the external implementation.
+Compile complete -- 0 errors, 1 warnings
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+Again, note csc gives warning while mcs/gmcs gives error.
