if you run Xfce4 from gdm (and maybe kdm and slim, I don't know), it's
run automagically from /etc/X11/Xsession.d/90gpg-agent.

I don't know what would be the correct way to handle this. I'm not sure
but maybe the startxfce4 script should use Xsession.d too, and thus we
could clean the /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc.

If you want to run gpg-agent (and you aren't running gdm), you can add
to your .xinitrc (or the global /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc) the content
of /etc/X11/Xsession.d/90gpg-agent (or maybe just source it)
