 +Invalid ioctl for device means the GPG agent was attempting to open a TTY. The agent lives on my MacBook, but the request comes from a remote system. So the remote system'​s GPG_TTY value is utterly useless on my MacBook, hence the error. Pinentry is the method by which the end-user (me) is prompted to enter a passphrase of the decryption key, the default is TTY, which doesn'​t work in this scenario. Using a GUI based one (line pinentry-mac) solves this, since the GUI always pops up on my Macbook.
