Hmmm... I don't think that /bin/sh does have a logout script.
However, you may still be able to use ssh-agent using the alternative
syntax.  You can tell ssh-agent to spawn another command, which is
usually used for something like a window manager.

Try putting a line like this at the end of your .profile:

    exec ssh-agent /bin/sh

which should put you into your usual shell running as a child of the
ssh-agent.  Once in, check your environment: there should be
SSH_AUTH_SOCK and SSH_AGENT_PID environment variables.  The ssh-agent
will run until you exit from the shell, and you can load keys into it
as normal.

Warning: make sure you have an alternate login you can use to fix your
account if this all goes horribly wrong and stops you being able to
log in at all.  I haven't tested doing anything like this myself, so I
really don't know if it will work properly or not.
