    It does. i cannot tell you from which version it does this, as I
    have not been looking for this before.
    Looking in /etc/X11xkb/symbols the EuroSign can be found (in
    different keys) in a lot of language keymaps, appart from Spanish

   The same with above. I think that the "Euro problem" should be solved
easily, not downloading 'rare' packages or using fonts from Windows or
Adobe.  I think that almost all the default fonts should include a
ISO-8859-15 version.
