As long as the music belongs to the same Voice context,
the stems should be joined. Try (untested):
    \notes < \context Voice=bassline \transpose c' { \bassline }
             \context Voice=bassline \transpose c  { \bassline } >

You may have to add a \stemUp or \stemDown, since the default
direction may be different in the two octaves.

I need to double a bass line in octaves.  So far I'm using this:

  \context Staff = bass {
    \clef bass
    \notes < \transpose c' { \bassline }
             \transpose c  { \bassline } >

However, this does not join the stems.

Is there a better way?  I'm not anxious to convert each note in the bass
line into an octave chord.
