ssh_agent is the one from OpenSSH, and if that doesn't work then
maybe there is another one that will work. Simon mentioned that GnuPG
has an agent and it might even make sense to write your very own
agent for this product. The agent protocol is very straightforward.

The best documentation is probably in the OpenSSH codebase and you
can of course also look at what agent.c in libssh2 does, as well as
ask questions about the protocol both on the OpenSSH list and here.
