The src attribute is defined as containing a <uri-specification>
which has the format 'url(' followed by a URI reference in single
or double quotes, followed by ')'. So your code should be 

<xsl:element name="fo:external-graphic">
  <xsl:attribute name="src">url('<xsl:value-of select="imgurl"/>/zenith.gif')</xsl:attribute>

By the way, you can collapse your code to a single line:

<fo:external-graphic src="url('{imgurl}/zenith.gif')" content-width="250px" content-height="80px" width="250px" height="80px"/>

What implementation are you using?

What does the FO file look like?
