No. But if you are using other programs that depend on that variable being
present (such as SVN), you can easily set that variable yourself:

export GPG_AGENT_INFO=$(gpgconf --list-dirs agent-socket)::

Which version of SVN are you using, though? Because recent versions seem to
have been updated to look for GnuPG Agent’s socket at the correct places in
the absence of the GPG_AGENT_INFO variable.
