I have Euro-symbol in my fonts
(ftp://ultra.penguin.cz/pub/ultrapenguin-1.1/sparc/misc/src/trees/fontsrc/)
including proper sfm (that is included) and acms for latin1 and latin2, so
the font side should not be the problem (the fonts are basically
iso8859-[12] but include most commonly used line drawing characters and
several characters from the CP437, so you can happily run mc and stuff like
that, while using latin1 or latin2 characters at the same time.
Euro-symbol is only accessible using Unicode though, as it is not present in
latin1 or latin2 nor in VT line drawing set, so some solution must be find
out to get applications without bigger effort use that character.

Cheers,
Jakub
