I'm assuming you only mean the bottom of the last page and not the bottom 
of every page.

Use an empty block at the end of your flow with a footnote construct with 
an empty inline for the footnote citation and the text that you want at the 
bottom of the page as the footnote-body.

This was my proposed solution for a disclaimer at the end of the body of 
some text:

Remember that XSL-FO is a layout language and if there is a layout 
construct giving you what you want, then ignore what the name of the 
construct is and use it to do what you need.

If you had meant the bottom of every page, check the use of static-content 
for a footer.

I hope this helps.
