I am generating an FO file from XML+XSL.
On the last page of the resulting document, I wish to put a fo:block at the bottom of the page. Is there another way to put it than use footer?

Yes, put it in a footnote construct, with an empty footnote citation. You will have to put the construct into an empty block, since it is an inline construct. The body of the footnote will drop to the bottom of the page.

Remember not to be prejudiced by the names of the XSL-FO constructs ... if one gives you the effect you need, go ahead and use it. XSL-FO describes layout and meaningful (but arbitrary) names have been given to the layout constructs.

I hope this helps.
