Why is security/pinentry not a dependency of security/gnupg

Hi all.

Perhaps someone can share his wisdom with me. I just installed security/gnupg
and tried to create a key pair using "gpg --gen-key". After issuing the command
gnupg barfed at me that pinentry could not be started. Now I wonder why pinentry
is not a dependency of gpg as it seems to rely on it?

Or is there some way to use gpg without pinentry?

Regards Tobias
