I think you'd generally want to start it via your desktop environment (gnome, 
kde or such). I'm not sure if there is a suggested way for a "clean" CentOS 
but with the gnupg2 package from epel you get 
a /etc/kde/env/gpg-agent-startup.sh file.

I'm a kde person so I'd probably use .kde/env/... if my dist didn't handle it.

I've also seen solutions on other dists using /etc/X11/Xsession.d/90gpg-agent

So, sorry, no good clean answer :-(
