Yes, that's okay.

You don't need to bother with it if you have a working Hurd now, unless
you are interested to work on boot disks in general.

For translated applications, set LC_ALL to de_DE (for example by

export LC_ALL

to /etc/profile).  To set a german keymap, check out
or so, it is hackish but should work.  There is no way to
set a German console font, though! So, i18n works best under X :)

If someone tells me how console fonts are handled in Linux
(hardware wise), I might be able to cook something up.

Doesn't it autodetect the adapter?  Maybe the standard kernel doesn't
include the driver.  You might try to compile your own gnumach with
--enable-XXX (see i386/README.Drivers or so).  You can't pass ioport and irq
parameters, so if autodetection fails you will have to modify the source
a bit.  We can talk about this later if needed.
