You need to reprogram your brain to stop thinking sequentially.

Write a template that outputs one row of the table. Then think about the
conditions in the source document that cause this row to be output, and
write a corresponding template rule. Within the template rule, access those
nodes in the source document that contribute data to this row of the result.

For more on this kind of grouping problem, see (or my
book XSLT Programmers Reference)
