Cleaning out the cobwebs, it's been a while. Just for completeness, this 
is the solution that I've used:

<!-- Generate the basic-link -->
<xsl:template name="basicLink">
    <xsl:param name="id"/>
<fo:basic-link external-destination=
ID: <xsl:value-of select="$id"/>

Add here is how I called it:

    <xsl:call-template name="basicLink">
        <xsl:with-param name="id">
            <xsl:value-of select="//PDBID" />
