agent: correct length for uri and comment on 64-bit big-endian platforms

* agent/findkey.c (agent_public_key_from_file): pass size_t as int to
gcry_sexp_build_array's %b.

This is only a problem on big-endian systems where size_t is not the
same size as an int. It was causing failures on debian's s390x,
powerpc64, and sparc64 platforms.

There may well be other failures with %b on those platforms in the
codebase, and it probably needs an audit.

Once you have a key in private-keys-v1.d/$KEYGRIP.key with a comment
or a uri of reasonable length associated with it, this fix can be
tested with:

gpg-agent --server <<<"READKEY $KEYGRIP"

On the failing platforms, the printed comment will be of length 0.
