Don't blame yourself for the negligence of people who don't bother to
write proper manpages.

The following environment variables affect the execution of
.BR quintuple\-agent :
If set, the X server running at the value of this variable is contacted,
and an X client spawned to prompt the user for the passphrase.

The above patch is just an example, and may not be correct, as I haven't
yet played with quintuple-agent.
