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,
