Oops! I left too many fo:table-column items. Sorry. Also, I'm not sure 
the fo:block-container tag is needed, as I believe the default is 
writing-mode="lr" (unless you change that somewhere else in your document).



Sounds like what you need is a table.

<fo:static-content flow-name="xsl-region-before">
<fo:block-container relative-position="relative" writing-mode="lr">
<fo:table border="0pt" table-layout="fixed" padding="1pt">
   <fo:table-column column-width="7.9cm"/>
   <fo:table-column column-width="4cm"/>
   <fo:table-column column-width="7.9cm"/>
       <fo:table-cell text-align="left" padding="0pt">
       <fo:table-cell text-align="center" padding="0pt">

       <fo:table-cell text-align="right" padding="0pt">
         <fo:block font-weight="bold">Custom Text</fo:block>

Hope this helps!
