I am trying to compile GPG 2.0.8 on my Mac. The
compilation itself seemed to work flawlessly, but
p.ex. upon decrypting a text, I get following error:

MacBook:bin foo$ ./gpg2 --homedir=/Users/foo/.gnupg/
-d /Users/foo/some-encrypted-file.gpg 

You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
user: "foo bar <foo at bar>"
1024-bit ELG key, ID 01234567, created 1970-01-01
(main key ID 76543210)

can't connect to `/Users/foo/.gnupg//S.gpg-agent': No
such file or directory
gpg-agent[65520]: directory
`/Users/foo/.gnupg/private-keys-v1.d' created
gpg-agent[65520]: can't connect server: `ERR 67109133
can't exec `/Users/foo/Downloads/built': Permission
gpg-agent[65520]: can't connect to the PIN entry
module: IPC connect call failed
gpg-agent[65520]: command get_passphrase failed: No
gpg: problem with the agent: No pinentry
gpg: encrypted with 1024-bit ELG key, ID 01234567,
created 2001-01-01
      "foo bar <foo at bar>"
gpg: public key decryption failed: General error
gpg: decryption failed: No secret key

In the compilation process, pinentry has of course
been compiled (with ncurses only). I have installed
(i.e. "--prefix=...") everything in a subdirectory of
my home - don't know if that matters.

Any idea on how to fix the error?
