Back on-list again. dhclient almost works, see below:

(Thanks Samuel for your help so far.)

On Linux you have ifupdown, and it seems to ba available on Hurd too.
The problem is that ifconfig (and route) from net-tools is not
available. A partial replacement seems to be inetutils-ifconfig.

Something still seems to be wrong with the dhclient, since I cannot get
out externally with eth0 set up with dhcp, and apt-get does not work.
iface eth0 inet dhcp

ssh -v external.site

In linux you have the route command from net-tools to check the routing
table, but it seems to FTBFS on Hurd. Looks like pfinet is aware of the
gateway address, but it still does not seem to work.
