In this case, I think it’s tractable.  In fact, I think Carsten might be
having problems with the XSLT rather than the FO.

The use of marker is the right approach; each row should have a marker
whose value is the running total to that point.  Carsten’s comment
(“update $totalsum”) indicates the usual problem with procedural coding;
the totalsum should be calculated afresh at each point.

The value of the last marker on the page can be retrieved in the footer
pretty easily, once that problem is addressed.
