Footnote contents are missing in PDF build when xmlroff is used.

FO conversion seems to do right job on footnote (I see contents) but
after using xmlroff with whichever backend, its created PDF files are
missing footnote.

        $(XP) --output $@ fo.xsl $<
        $(XP) xmlroff.xsl $< |$(XP) --output $@ fo.xsl -

and add xmlroff.xsl as attached. (Stolen from my local maint-guide for
