Well, it names seahorse-agent in the dialog that comes up.  There may
well be other programs that fill the proper protocol.

The point, however, isn't the specific program that's required.  The
point is that Evolution comes out of the box requiring a program --
seahorse-agent or gpg-agent; it doesn't really matter which -- that is
not set up to be running.  And that what it says you have to do doesn't
point to a program name that's visible on any menu.  And that it should
really be set up to work out of the box instead of requiring the user to
manually run anything at all anyway.
