I presume you mean in PDF output from the XSL-FO stylesheets?

I don't think this can be done directly with the DocBook
XSL stylesheets.  The XSL-FO spec does not have a way
to turn on line numbers, so there is nothing the 
stylesheet can do to turn it on.

However, the following url describes a 
method for post processing the DocBook HTML output
using MS Word, and then generating a PDF file from Word.
