How to change passphrase for ssh-keys?

I'm using the ssh-agent function of gpg-agent. When I recently changed all the 
passwords on my system, I noticed that gpg-agent uses its own passphrase to 
protect the ssh-keys added to it - however, I couldn't find a way to change 
that passphrase in the documentation.

What is the recommended way to do this? Note well, I'm not talking about the 
passphrase protecting the ssh-keys themselves, I'm talking about the 
passphrase that gpg-agent uses to protect them *after* they have been added 
to gpg-agent through ssh-add.
