Or if you're using a development version (highly recommended), forget
compctl altogether, and do `autoload compinstall; compinstall' to
install the new completion system, which is much better.

Completion of man pages should then work automatically.  You can
also configure ssh etc. like so:

  # All my accounts:

  # Other people's accounts:

  zstyle ':completion:*:my-accounts' users-hosts $my_accounts
  zstyle ':completion:*:other-accounts' users-hosts $other_accounts


  zstyle ':completion:*:*:telnet:*' users-hosts-ports $telnet_users_hosts_ports

Note to zsh-workers: it looks like completion within the -l option of
telnet is broken.
