Change the location of the gpg-agent socket?

I'm using gnupg 2.1.11 on OSX. This works great.
I'm using BOX as a sync tool to keep my .gnupg directory backed up.
However, BOX chokes on the unix socket 'S.gpg-agent' that's there when
the agent is running.
I've searched through the docs but couldn't find a way to configure
the location of the socket, other than at compile time.

Any ideas how to achieve this at runtime?

Many thanks!
