I have put together a recipe inheriting from go-mod. This project depends on out-of-repo modules that sit in private repos. As long as the SSH key required to pull the requirements is present as a file (under $HOME/.ssh), everything works fine. However, as soon as the SSH credentials are only available via agent and $SSH_AUTH_SOCK, the do_compile step fails. I have traced this down to the fact that the $SSH_AUTH_SOCK environment variable is not available to do_compile which is when the requirements are pulled. This is the sort of error message I get:
On Ubuntu, when the password for my SSH key is in the gnome keyring, I
eval $(/usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --start --components=pkcs11,secrets,ssh); export SSH_AUTH_SOCK
in the terminal that will run bitbake.

No idea if it's the proper way to make it work, but for the few times I
need to fetch new revisions of private repos, it's been good enough to

Hope this helps,
