I believe there are easier solutions!

If you are on text-mode DOS, then the correct way is to use
proper .CPI file with the Euro character in one cell, right?

I once saw such a .CPI, with the Y2K update for IBM DOS 7
(that was an Euro update as well): Euro character was at
position D5, and the .CPI included in the update reflected
the changes. They worked quite well with any version of DOS
from 3.3 up, including MS-DOS 7.x (the one below Windows 9x).
I did not check with NT, but I do not expect problems.

On the other hand, I have no idea of the licence stuff.
I would not be surprised if extracting the .CPI from the
package to give it away is not allowed.
