This can only be done if you use XSLT2.
Do you?

If you do, here is how to use Saxon for that
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <xsl:stylesheet 
        xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
        xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="2.0"
         exclude-result-prefixes="xsi">
        <xsl:param name="joinDir">file:/F:/10_Development/2008/Q3/</xsl:param>
        <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" />
        <xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>
        
        <xsl:template match="/">
            <xsl:element name="filelist">
                <xsl:for-each select="collection(concat($joinDir, '?select=*.xml'))">
                    <file href="{tokenize(base-uri(), '/')[last()]}"/>
                </xsl:for-each>
            </xsl:element>
        </xsl:template>
        
   </xsl:stylesheet>
