System V init has some deliberate limits (for example a fixed number of
run-levels). For the hurd we want something better.

However, I ported sysvinit from Linux to the Hurd. An experimental, old
and probably broken package is on alpha. A recompilation will follow in 
a few
days (I have other reasons to work on that, too). So hold your breath.
The maintainer of sysvinit rejected my patch a year ago, and I had no 
to do it as he wanted.
