BibTeX doesn't play a role to generate ePub: to generate the relevant
DocBook tags, I rely on LyX' understanding of the .bib file (which
typically works very well); the DocBook to ePub conversion seems to support
references too.

For which documents do you have this problem?

I have added the possibility in the script to use non-built-in Saxon or
XSLT. However, doesn't look for these: how could I check for
system Saxon or XSLT in a distribution-independent manner?
