You can tell the keyring daemon not to provide ssh-agent services.
Perhaps doing that and using the ssh-agent from openssh (which I
believe is still started automatically if no agent is running
already).

To disable ssh services in gnome-keyring-daemon:

gconftool-2 --set -t bool /apps/gnome-keyring/daemon-components/ssh false

Some very thin documentation on gnome-keyring-daemon's ssh handling is
at: http://live.gnome.org/GnomeKeyring/Ssh
