There were on the contrary a lot of indicators. The most basic one is the way the relationship between Angua and Sally is being portrayed. As Jean already pointed out, it is extremely reminiscent of the relationships between the male and the female lead in many Hollywood movies; she named "African Queen" and "Two Mules for Sister Sara" as examples. Maybe you have to be lesbian to feel it, but I notice a lot of sexual tension between Angua and Sally, and not because of them warring over Carrot.
As Terry isn't a Lesbian i can't imagine he would be capable of putting in subtle signals only Lesbians can pick up on
I agree with you partially, but only partially. Pratchett did not put in the hints consciously. But there are a few. Remember the moment when Sally tells her shoe-size, for example?
