I see that gpg-agent is started from ${prefix}/etc/LaunchAgents/org.macports.gpg-agent/org.macports.gpg-agent.plist, which also sets SSH_AUTH_SOCK . When I remove that Sockets key from that launchd plist, ssh-agent functionality is restored.

The gpg-agent port used to provide this LaunchAgent, but it was recently
marked as obsolete and replaced by gnupg2 [1]. Just uninstall the
gpg-agent port and switch to gnupg2. gpg-agent will now be launched
on-demand by gpg itself.
