As already suggested, gpg-agent's --supervised command is probably the
closest thing that would do what you want, but in that case, gpg-agent

* expect to have a properly set up environment, which runit's 'chpst
-e' could do. This includes variable GPG_TTY, which should contain the
name of a valid terminal that the supervision tree would have to make
* expect to receive a bound and listening UNIX domain socket as file
descriptor 3, which runit tools alone can't do (but
s6-ipcserver-socketbinder from s6 can).

Then, also as already mentioned, this command has been deprecated
since GnuPG 2.3.6, so, in my opinion, it's better to just have
gpg-agent started by other GnuPG programs, as the manual says.
