I haven't used Axkit, but have had no particular problems using
libXML/libXSLT and the perl wrappers. 
There's an example on (see the links at
the bottom of the page) - the perl is just a place holder and the xsl is
probably awful, but it fits your requirement of simplicity, and passing
parameters from perl (couldn't be easier). There's a tarball and cvs, but
don't expect much - there's only a few files so far.

It seems fine for speed so far (the host its on can be very slow, but
there are no visible delays on other systems). It is using mod_perl
rather than cgi, though.

Good luck
