I have now working scripts dhclient-script.hurd and dhclient-script.hurd.udeb

Both udeb for Linux and kfreeBSD have strange constructs I've not been
able to find out about, e.g.

new_mask="/$(ptom $new_subnet_mask)"

Is the ptom command something in the Debian installer, or elsewhere.
I've replaced it with another construct (same as the regular one) for

Another issue is about inetutils-ifconfig: According to the help/manpage
there should be commands for activating and shutting down the interface,
but for Hurd they don't work. 

inetutils-ifconfig -i eth0 --up
inetutils-ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS failed: (os/device) invalid IO size

inetutils-ifconfig -i eth0 --down

Well, maybe it worked, I lost my remote ssh connection! Will check later
on the real box. Nevertheless, if it does not work, the dhclient-scripts
are only partly functional. However, they can at least successfully
activate the interface.
