how to make it so much easier

The hint as posted did not work for me on Panther. Three things were missing.. backticks around the ssh-agent, -s on the ssh-agent, and -S instead of -p in the tests.

# Start an ssh-agent for global use (and detect agent-forwarding).
if [ -z "$SSH_AUTH_SOCK" -o ! -S "$SSH_AUTH_SOCK" ] ; then
export SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/tmp/ssh-yoda-agent
if [ ! -S "$SSH_AUTH_SOCK" ] ; then
`ssh-agent -a $SSH_AUTH_SOCK -s`
