No, that is not possible. Look at the 2.1 beta and you will see why:
gpg-agent is now a mandatory part of gpg because it is used for all
public key operations involving a secret key.
If you want to use your own pinentry, you may do so: We provide envvars
passed to the pinentry which can be set by the application to convey
information to the pinentry. Such a pinentry may then loop back to the
application. gpg-preset-passphrase(1) is another option to control
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
