How to make gnome keyring ask for passphrase on the command line instead of a GUI pop-up?

I want to be asked for my passphrase on the command line in the
terminal when I ssh to somewhere.  By default gnome keyring (or
whatever talks to it) asks for the passphrase in a GUI pop-up.  

How can I change the default so it asks for it on the command line?
