I know its something that is probably a security risk, but is it possible
to do something similar to ssh-agent?

I found it annoying having to enter my passphrase twice to compile a
package. I used the PGPPASS environment variable temporarily with pgp,
which is not the most desirable method, but I havent looked/found anything
similar for gpg.
