[xsl] Trying to use Docbook transforms with Saxon7

chunker.xsl fails because it is looking for saxon:output, with the saxon namespace identified as xmlns:saxon="http://icl.com/saxon";. Looking at the Saxon7 docs, I don't think just changing the namespace will bring joy. Here is a quote of the offending snippet.

<xsl:template name="make-relative-filename">
  <xsl:param name="base.dir" select="'./'"/>
  <xsl:param name="base.name" select="''"/>

    <!-- put Saxon first to work around a bug in libxslt -->
    <xsl:when test="element-available('saxon:output')">
      <!-- Saxon doesn't make the chunks relative -->
      <xsl:value-of select="concat($base.dir,$base.name)"/>
    <!-- other alternatives deleted -->
      <xsl:message terminate="yes">
        <xsl:text>Don't know how to chunk with </xsl:text>
        <xsl:value-of select="system-property('xsl:vendor')"/>

I realize this isn't a lot of information; I am hoping someone has already been there, done that.
