ssh-agent not working properly...

Hi all
i am an ubuntu and debian sid user, lately i found a nice distro called elive, based on debian etch and installed it.
It works wonderfully, if not for minor quirks, however:
ssh-agent is not started on bootup like default debian
if i manually start ssh-agent then ssh-add, i get an error that ssh-add couldn't connect to ssh-agent...
how can i track down this problem?
ssh-agent is still running and not zombie, but i can't ssh-add keys to it..
any idea where should i look?
all the easy solutions are already tried:
purge and reinstall, check permissions..

i think i made a small step forward
i found that if i give #env
the SSH_AGENT_PID variable is not shown
if i launch manually ssh-agent
still the variable is not shown.
But i don't know how can i make it get the correct variable!
