I assume that you're having trouble with the MacPorts gpg-agent port,  
which I currently maintain, though I'm no expert in using it.  Can  
you provide details of the problems that you are having with  
installing or running it, and what you would ordinarily expect to do  
to get it working on Linux and FreeBSD?

Kind regards,
