Oh the joys of the current bootstrap code.

I believe your system actually makes it into runsystem.sysv before
hanging (note the two empty lines at the bottom, one is b/c of
wrapping around after "auth", one is printed from runsystem.sysv).
You can stick a "set -x" into it to see where it hangs.

If I should guess I'd say your root filesystem got corrupted and the
root translator just crashes.  /hurd/startup should notice that but
doesn't for some reason.  Or it ran out of space and thus crashed.
Try to break into the kernel debugger using ctrl-alt-d, and enter
`show all threads'.

As always, fsck early and fsck often.
