Probably after compinit in your .zshrc. Or from the command-line if you
are just testing it.

Sorry, my mistake. I'm stuck on a windows PC and couldn't test what I
was writing. You do need the () in the function definition as you
spotted. Also, the call to the sysctl command would need to be changed
to output all the sysctl variables. I didn't look closely at your
compctl function which references $1. The new system uses special
variables like $PREFIX instead.

Ignore the _sysctl example I gave you and try something simpler like:
  _f() { compadd one two three } ; compdef _f f
If that works, then you're not missing anything fundamental.

You can get the latest _sysctl from:

It's an area of the new completion system that needs some reworking.

You could try setting the hosts style which if set prevents the
/etc/hosts lookup. You may need a fairly specific context if you want
to keep /etc/hosts in other contexts (probably use the same context as
for users-hosts above after chopping `:my-accounts' off the end).
Typing Ctrl-X,h is useful for working out the right context.

There might be another, perhaps better way using tag-order but I'm not
too sure of details without first getting to a UNIX box.
