I have added the necessary infrastructure support for libexslt in commit
ab03e87741f25d3a5532a75c3dc59b5556a2bb24 . All you need to do now is to

--- a/filter/
+++ b/filter/
@@ -41,6 +41,7 @@ $(eval $(call gb_Library_use_libraries,xsltfilter,\
 $(eval $(call gb_Library_use_externals,xsltfilter,\
+	libexslt \
 	libxml2 \
 	libxslt \
