Question about avoiding "pinentry" prompt after login

I currently use libpam-poldi to manage authentication on my workstation.
My login passphrase is thus the same as my GnuPG key passphrase.

After I log in, I'm always prompted with the "pinentry" dialog to
re-enter my key passphrase so that my password manager can decrypt my
network password.

Is there any preferred or accepted way to have the login process pass
the key passphrase to gpg-agent so that I don't have to answer the
pinentry prompt every time I log in?
