I don't understand this.  It is in general useless to tell gpg-agent not
to use pinentry for a desktop machine.  For a server you want to use
gpg-preset-passpharse or - better - use no passphrase at all.

Libgcrypt is a low-level library without any relation to OpenPGP or
S/MIME.  It is much like libc.
