Actually, there is. The latest Debian hurd package makes this pretty
easy. Let me quote from the NEWS.Debian:
* The Hurd console may now be started automatically on bootup. The
file `/etc/default/hurd-console' controls whether the Hurd console
will be started, and if so, which options are used. To get the
Hurd console on bootup, change ENABLE to `true' and adjust the
other options to your liking.
Please let us know about issues,
