xsltproc is the best you can get. The required packages (libxml2 and
libxslt) are stable, portable, and as self-contained as possible.
(Running 'ldd' on libxml2.so and libxslt.so shows no dependencies other
than to the C runtime and libz for compression. And I'm pretty sure you
can avoid the latter if you are willing to recompile the packages to
explicitly disable compression support.)
