ssh-agent and ssh-add not talking?

Howdy folks,

I recently upgraded from 2.1 where a compile-from-source install of Xfree86
4.0.1 was working fine to 2.2.  I used ssh-agent and ssh-add to store my
ssh keys for easy logging into remote hosts.  However, upon upgrading to
deb 2.2 I couldn't get X started with the old xinitrc (would startup, blink
the screen, then die without a warning of any kind)  So, a simple xinitrc
with just the name of my window manager did the trick.  Now, however, when
I type ssh-add (after starting ssh-agent), it complains that it "could not
open a connection to your authentication agent".

I don't suppose any one has any idea what has happened?  I never removed
the deb package install of xfree3.3.6 so these were replaced in the deb 2.2
upgrade, I just don't know what exactly it was that was replaced to cause
this problem.

any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
