Mac OS X doesn't have per-user sudirectories of /var/run. And putting
anything there requires sudo. Plus, the new SIP "feature" in 10.11 and up
might not let anything go there even with sudo (I can't recall whether
/var/run is one of the exceptions; I disabled SIP long ago).
Also, Mac OS X doesn't have /run, not even as a symlink.
Please be careful with this. I don't think Mac users should be forced to
set some $XDG_* stuff just to use gpg-agent.
