Ok so I now emerged the stable packages and unmerged the hard masked packages 
but still the same problem.

I passed the command you mentioned and gpg-agent is running.

Actually I was so desperate that even restarted the system. Doesn't help.

I followed the instructions on this page
http://kmail.kde.org/kmail-pgpmime-howto.html#gnupg
When I pass the command "echo "test" | gpg -ase -r 0xDEADBEEF | gpg" as 
mentioned on the page, I get an error that says "gpg: problem with the agent 
- disabling agent use". Seems as though gpg-agent is not allowing 
connections. Anyways to solve this problem. I am completely stumped.
