My approach does not use a tmp file - it uses an Ant property.

0001: <exec resultproperty="out.xml" .../>
0002: <xslt out="..." style="...">
0003:     <resources>
0004:         <property name="out.xml"/>
0005:     </resources>
0006: </xslt> 

#1 catches the result (maybe you need 'outputproperty'...) of your
external program.
#2 xslt as usual: define the output file and the stylesheet
#3 here we use new features of Ant 1.7 - the resource collections (as
#4 and one resource is the value of an Ant property

But you have to ensure that the value of the property ${out.xml} is xml
Otherwise you'll earn a BuildException...
