use gnome-keyring-daemon for ssh and gpg agents

Some systems start gnome-keyring via PAM as part of the login process.  Since
that means gnome-keyring will be running anyway and since gnome-keyring can
provide ssh-agent and gpg-agent services also, the overhead of running separate
ssh-agent and/or gpg-agent processes can be avoided.

This patch demonstrates how gnome-keyring-daemon can be used with XFCE instead
of starting the gpg-agent and/or the ssh-agent.
