CV boot replacement: stripped inner cv joint bolts

Set out to replace the driver's side outer CV boot on my 89 200q today...

Three of the six Torx head bolts that attach the inner CV joint to the
transimission are stripped.  The Torx heads are stripped.  Seems the axle
has been removed in the past and new bolts were not used and the Torx was
already compromised.  Joy.

Aside from any ugly approach like saws, drills, or vise grips, does
anyone have any clever ideas?
